Arts Society Lecturer Dr Caroline Levisse reveals her theories. The brush is used in service of the subject, beautifully descriptive and probing, capturing what is essential to the subject with an economy of means. Masterpiece was part of the largest ever retrospective of Lichtenstein that visited The Art Institute of Chicago from May 16 to September 3, 2012, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. From October 14, 2012 to January 13, 2013, the Tate Modern in London from February 21 to May 27, 2013 and The Centre Pompidou from July 3 to November 4, 2013. Several publications presented Masterpiece as part of their announcement of the retrospective.
Who Says It’s A Masterpiece?
Images of works of art contained in publicity material, including the Masterpiece website, or used on social media may not have been reviewed and are illustrative only. They base their judgement on the authenticity of the work of art. At times, an exhibit may be requested to be either removed or relabelled. Masterpiece London is the unmissable art fair where visitors can view and buy the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery – from antiquity to the present day. The fair offers an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale, from international exhibitors spanning every major market discipline.
The artist is known for her award-winning, immersive light installations, and has been the subject of three solo museum shows in the past year. Van Gogh’s most famous painting shows the village of Saint-Rémy and is considered his greatest masterpiece. The view is that of his asylum’s bedroom window, and was painted from memory in 1889. This is part of a series of expressionist paintings by Edvard Munch. The background is a landscape in Norway, and depicts a screaming figure symbolizing the anguishes of modern life. Two of them are now in Oslo’s National Gallery, while another is in the same city’s Munch Museum.
Success was determined by the ability to execute a piece to perfection, dans les règles de l’art (or ‘by the book’). During the Renaissance, painting and sculpture were newly considered as ‘art’ rather than a trade or craft, and art academies replaced guilds as an authoritative and organising body. From then, creativity became increasingly important in the making of an outstanding work of art. In his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects , Giorgio Vasari celebrated artists’ technical virtuosity and their unique vision and inventiveness. Michelangelo’s David and Leonardo’s Mona Lisa are two excellent examples.
Some feelings must be evoked, whether it’s curiosity, awe, or disgust. It is helpful to discuss perspective and form, but still, this would not describe that elusive element essential to any moving work, and the motive is another important factor. Michelangelo’s Prisoners, or Slaves, were begun for the tomb of Pope Julius II but never finished.

That played a central role in the best-selling fiction novel “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown. It’s the masterpiece of all masterpieces, the most famous, most discussed and most enigmatic of all paintings. It’s the portrait of a woman, said to be named Lisa Gherardini, painted by Leonardo da Vinci between 1503 and 1506. It’s been on permanent display in Paris since 1797, except for a period of two years when it was stolen in 1911, before returning to the Louvre in 1913. The depicted smile has continuously captured the world’s imagination ever since.

This sculpture has survived for over 2100 years, with the exception of the original arms. It dates all the way back to between 100 and 130 B.C., and depicts Aphrodite , the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Made of marble, it is slightly larger than life size, and is one of the most famous ancient Greek sculptures. It was discovered in a farmer’s field in the Greek island of Milos in 1820, and soon acquired by France.
