More like a sanctuary than a museum, The Museum of Modern Art in midtown Manhattan has earned its reputation as the greatest collection of modern art in the world, and this world-famous institution is well worth the trip for anyone visiting New York City. An inspirational building in its own right, filled with light and contemporary space and design, MoMA houses such masterpieces as Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Claude Monet’s Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond, and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. That’s right: many of those pieces you perhaps thought of as classics are actually modern art! Not limited to the abstract, MoMA holds the works of such masters as Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, Paul Cézanne, and many more.
In addition, the rebels of the art world are represented here in their interpretative splendor. Marvel at the works of Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dali, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Dorothea Lange, Cindy Sherman, Elizabeth Murray, Wilson Bentley, and countless others.
