The Museum of Modern Art Highlights

Migration Series by Jacob Lawrence

The Migration Series is a seminal collection of painting which represents the ‘Great Migration’. The artwork symbolises the mass movement of African Americans from South to North at the beginning of the 20th century. 

Gone by Kara Walker

Kara Walker’s Gone displays black cut-out silhouettes on a white background. The iconic imagery displays scenes from the American Civil War which explores the artificial constructs of race through unconventional themes and messages. 

Les Demoiselles D'Avignon by Pablo Picasso

Amongst Picasso’s collection of impressive artworks, Les Demoiselles D’Avignon stands out as one of his most popular creations. The installation shows an angular representation of women at a local brothel which many claims have kickstarted cubism after the artist showed it to his fellow proto-cubist Georges Braque.

The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

The Starry Night is an iconic oil painting created in 1889 and is a hallmark of the Impressionist period. The beauty lies in Van Gogh’s expressive and fluid brushstrokes that add texture and energy to the canvas. The landscape was painted after being inspired by his year-long stay at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in France and continues to attract thousands of tourists to date.

Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol

There are a total of 32 canvases that display this famous work of Worhol - all displaying paintings of a Campbell’s soup can in various flavours. While the collection did create some controversy at first, today is seen as one of the major art forms in the pop art movement.

Water Lilies by Claude Monet

This is another incredible masterpiece that represents work from the Impressionist period. Like many Impressionist works, the viewer’s experience changes as they get closer or move away from the painting which can only be experienced in person at MoMA NY. The installation spans out an entire wall making it stand out from the other art collections at the museum. 

The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

Dubbed by the artist as ‘hand-painted dream photographs’, this painting is universally recognized. An abstract flow can be seen through this painting which is widely regarded as among the best works in surrealism.
