If you happen to be in Paris, you should definitely visit Musee d’Orsay, since it has a unique collection of Impressionist works, that are a historical treasure. You will have the opportunity to see works by artists like Pissarro, Monet, or Degas.
This gallery is entirely dedicated to Picasso and all his works. People usually know about this artist that he used to paint abstract works, because they were the most popular. However, Picasso was more than that.
The museum’s architecture is just as incredible as Picasso’s works. If you ever happen to visit Barcelona, this gallery should definitely be on your must-see and must-visit list.

Of course, there are many other galleries that have their own style, theme and history that have to be seen in a lifetime, because each of them is unique. Art is one of the few things that are able to make humans feel something and express their emotions. We have to take every chance we have to see pieces of art, because they are not just objects – they also hide (and express) the feelings of the artist.
