If you manage to stay in Nice near the Arc de Venet, you will be able to see one of the early works of the contemporary sculpture Bernard Venet. Bernet came to Nice at 17 years of age, to study at the Ville Thiole. His metal sculptures, often of corten steel, are found around the world. There are pieces on display inside and as outdoor installations. They include one in Berlin and the Arc de Venet, Nice. He now lives in New York but is still remembered fondly in the city.The Arc de Venet towers several meters into the sky of Nice in the Jardin Albert 1er. Against the backdrop of palm trees and other greenery, the Arc de Venet makes a simple but dramatic statement. Although it contrasts with the environment, the sculpture is an iconic landmark. It is also a favorite place where the locals arrange to meet.
