Popular Paintings

The most Popular or Famous Paintings featured on “Joy of Museums” is derived from a list of paintings that are the most searched for on web-based search engines or searched for on this site.

Most modern paintings, such as Picasso’s masterpieces and later artists, have copyright restrictions. Thus pictures of contemporary art cannot be used to lead a feature post. We are therefore restricted in featuring many modern artists. Approval to use images of works that are still under copyright has been requested and we hope to receive appropriate permissions in the future, to allow us to feature more recent art that is under copyright.
