Greatest Paintings of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Mona Lisa (Leonardo Da Vinci) The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci that has been described as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world".

She is very beautiful woman

It's just the best painting like Bohemian Rhapsody the best song. Not even Leonardo's best. For a lot of people this is the only painting they know by title. - Alkadikce

An Exquisite painting, but is a bit overrated. It’s not the best painting out there. I love art, and there are lots of paintings better than this, like Love's Shadow, and anything by Waterhouse. - TopTenTed

Most known for sure

2 Starry Night (Vincent Van Gogh)

It is a beautiful painting. - TopTenTed

This painting is out of this world... pure beauty!

Much better than Mona Lisa. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I don't like landscape paintings and I'm also not a very big van gogh fan, but this painting is so beautiful! - Sjinkiie

3 The Last Supper (Leonardo Da Vinci)

Hands down, the best painting ever. It describes every single thing described of the last supper in the bible.

4 The Kiss (Gustav Klimt)

This is a statue

5 The Scream (Edvard Munch)
