The Musée de Carmen-Macein (also called Carmina) is a private art museum in the Kasbah area of Tangier, Morocco.[1] The museum contains sculptures, paintings and lithographs by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí and Georges Braque.[2][3]

Description[edit]

Carmen Macein was a friend of the Spanish King Juan Carlos and a local figure of the beat generation gatherings in the Moroccan city.[4] She was an art dealer who exhibited the artwork she sold on her yacht, the Vagrant.[5] The boat was built by Horace Vanderbilt in 1941 and later bought by the Beatles in 1966.[6]
