Art and culture
Many artists, writers, and painters have been inspired by Antibes.
Antibes attracted famed impressionist painter Claude Monet, modern artist Nicolas de Staël, and even the celebrated Pablo Picasso, who bought the Château Grimaldi as a residence, which is now the Museum bearing his name. Writers who fell under the city’s spell include Somerset Maugham and Guillaume Musso. Juan les Pins owes some of its fame to Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, who started the spa tourism trend in the 1930s.
