Art Bucket List: Great Artworks Worth Traveling For

Art has the power to provoke strong emotional reactions, and its creation is closely tied to important turning points in history.

Here is my art bucket list, presented to you geographically. 

I had to start with the mother of all artistic tourist draws in the world.

Louvre Museum 

Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci (c. 1503) 

She’s doubtless the most famous ancient Greek sculpture in the world (with or without arms).

Venus de Milo, Alexandros of Antioch (c. 101 BC) 

It’s just downright beautiful. Look at how Renoir captured the light! 

Musee d’Orsay 

Bal du moulin de la Galette, Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1876)

There, in two large oval rooms on the ground floor, are installed eight unvarnished oil paintings on 22 panels.

Musée de l’Orangerie 

Water Lilies, Claude Monet (c. 1915-1926) 

Easily one of the most celebrated and recognizable sculptures ever created.

Musée Rodin 

The Thinker, Auguste Rodin (1906)
