Most Famous Paintings at the MoMA New York
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) was founded in 1929, and is currently one of the most influential museums of modern art in the world. At the MoMA you will find the best paintings by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Paul Cézanne, Gustav Klimt, Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol and other leading contemporary artists.
Although the museum has a collection of nearly 200,000 pieces, today I’m sharing a selection of famous artworks that you cannot miss during your visit to the MoMA! I captured the majority of these photos on the fourth and fifth floor of the museum – where you will find the MoMA’s most popular paintings. Let’s get started!
The Starry Night, Vincent van Gogh (1889)
The Water Lilies, Claude Monet (1914)
Hope II, Gustav Klimt (1907)
Street, Dresden, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner (1908)
Girl In Front of Mirror, Pablo Picasso (1932)
The Persistence of Memory, Salvador Dalí (1931)
Campbell’s Soup Can, Andy Warhol (1962)
The She-Wolf, Jackson Pollock (1943)
Self Portrait with Cropped Hair, Frida Kahlo (1940)
The Song of Love, Giorgio de Chirico (1914)
Las Señoritas de Avignon, Pablo Picasso (1907)
Here are three more paintings that I found to be stunning. In the middle you can see Tree of Paradise by Séraphine Louis, you can find this piece on the 5th floor of the museum.
Street Light, Giacomo Balla (1910)
Plan Your Visit to the MoMA
The main works are located on floors 4 and 5, so my recommendation is to start your visit there, and make your way down.
Get your ticket in advance, and go early in the morning! When I visited the museum I waited around thirty minutes in line at the ticket counter.
