Its massive collection runs the gamut from ancient Egypt and classical Greece to 19th-century paintings, but the Louvre is voted one of the top 10 art gallery destinations in the world because of one artwork – the surprisingly diminutive Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.
Monet’s Water Lilies and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans are just some of the star attractions at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. MoMA’s collection offers an unparalleled overview of modern art in all its quirky forms, from film and photography to performance art and design.
Botticelli’s sublime Birth of Venus is just one of the highlights in the home of the Renaissance, the Uffizi Gallery. Works by early Renaissance masters like Giotto and Fra Angelico are joined by masterpieces by Leonardo and Michelangelo in this elegant palace designed by Vasari in 1560.
