Artworks by the world's most famous artists

When you think of the world's most famous artworks, you might think of works by the great masters of the Renaissance (Leonardo Da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael...) or even the French impressionist artists of the 19th century (Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet...). But often, many of the names that come to mind are contemporary artists. And, unlike their elders, whose works are usually kept in museums, they are available on Artsper!

In Artsper's catalogue, you'll find originals and prints by the world's most famous cubist master, Pablo Picasso. Collectors from all over the world fight over his paintings, and over the decades, there have been multitudes of exhibitions and retrospectives dedicated to the Spanish artist, which have touched on a variety of themes including war, corrida, portraiture and more.

On the list of the world's most famous artists, the surrealist movement is well represented with European geniuses like Salvador Dali, Joan Míro, or Belgian artist René Magritte. Their bizarre artworks have conquered audiences across the globe and have forever left their mark in the art world, with emblematic drawings and iconic paintings like Dali's melting clocks in The Persistence of Memory. 

Born in the 1960s, Pop Art is another example of an art movement that marked the 20th century with some of the most famous names in the art world, starting with its instigators: Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Already acclaimed in their lifetime, their paintings are constantly breaking sale records on the international art market. Today, conceptual art also has an important position. The changes initiated with Marcel Duchamp's ready-mades in the early twentieth century went on to revolutionise the art world and artistic practices. 

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, the Indian Anish Kapoor, the American Jeff Koons, or even the British artist David Hockney have established themselves as some of the world's most influential contemporary artists. In fact, Hockney's painting Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) became the world's most expensive painting in November 2018, selling for 90.3$ million! 

Since its beginnings in the 1980s, Street Art has also come a long way. Long considered as mere vandalism, this artistic movement has established itself as a legitimate practice, and a number of the today's most popular artists work in the style. Each creation (or destruction) of Banksy's latest works create mass hysteria. Thousands of people rush over to admire and photograph his creations before they get stolen or damaged. 

So, whether you are fond of figurative or abstract painting, you'll have the pleasure of browsing through artworks by the greatest artists of our era.
