About museumThe Musee d'Art Classique de Mougins (MACM) is a private museum which houses the collection of its founder, Christian Levett, a British investment manager with a passion for history and the arts. In 2008 he decided to found a museum, to enable him to share the collection with others. The MACM enjoys the rich historical background of the Cote d'Azur, and is situated in the historic region of the Mediterranean at the edge of ancient Greek civilisation and the heart of the Roman Empire. It is close to the Graeco-Roman settlements of Nice (Nikaia), Cimiez (Cemenelum) and Antibes (Antipolis). Mougins also reconnects with its ancient past through the modern art produced by its former residents including Francis Picabia, Jean Cocteau, and Man Ray, as well as Pablo Picasso.
