This intimate museum, housed in a former 16th century chapel practically on St. Tropez's bustling harborfront, is a gem. If you are into the Fauves or Expressionism or post-Impressionist painting at all, Musee de l'Annonciade might well become your favorite museum in the world. Those who studied modern art history will be surprised to see among this small museum's relatively small collection, several paintings remembered from books or from being projected 100x their size and etched into memory as icons of early 20th art. [The smaller actual size does not diminish their impact in reality, of course.] Represented are Bonnard, Derain, Dufy, Matisse, Van Dongen, Signac and others, many of whom found inspiration in the area, and were drawn here by the sultry light and by other artists who marked the path for them from Paris. Check the times carefully as they are closed at lunch (this IS France), and all day on Tuesdays.
