Museum of Modern Art is known throughout the country to celebrate creativity, open-mindedness, tolerance and generosity. The Museum is known as a place that fuels creative, ignites a curiosity and proffers inspiration. You can actually spend an entire day getting lost in the world’s greatest art museum. Although it’s collection doesn’t span millennia, it has some of the finest collections of world’s modern art. Dubbed as the original modern art museum, it’s permanent collection is more than stellar. And along with that, it also promotes special events and temporary exhibitions.
With 6 floors brimming with thousands of artworks, it can be very difficult to navigate through the museum and find the key artworks.
Here’s a list of some of the most significant works of art in the museum.
Lee Bontecou, Untitled
Bontecou was a rare special in the male-dominated scene of postwar American art. Made with industrial canvas salvaged from a conveyor belt, the artwork is praised by many for its ominous, aggressive qualities.
The Starry Night, Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh painted this masterpiece after witnessing a morning star, which, as he described, as a very big star. Been in the music since ‘41, it was recognized after the artist’s death.
The Bather, Paul Cezanne
The Bather is one of Paul’s most evocative works and captures an adolescent boy mid-step. Though quite traditional in its subject matter, the painting successfully captures a fleeting moment of time.
There are several bus stops near me which run transit buses to Midtown Manhattan.
