Art is a visual reference of the culture of a people, time, and place as seen through the eyes of the men and women who have recorded it for posterity. Each artist has given us a special insight into their world as they lived it. Our museums located all around the world have placed these works of inspiration on display for our enjoyment for generations to come.
