Vence, France

A pilgrimage today to a Matisse Chapel: the chapelle Du Rosaries du Vence, a small Chapel with a rich story! Watch this trailer.

Interior photos not allowed. Built around 1950, every element designed by Matisse including vestments, crucifixes, stained glass windows and ceramic tile murals. Actually masterminded by his nurse, turned Dominican nun. Sister Jaques-Marie died in the. 80's and was not allowed to attend Matisse's funeral, but was said to keep a photograph of him in her cell!

And a bit of Vence...
