Synopsis

This imaginary museum, created and curated by Phaidon, houses the finest art collection ever assembled. Unrestricted by the constraints of physical space, its rooms display around 3,000 paintings, sculptures, frescos, photographs, tapestries, friezes, installations, performances, videos, woodblock prints, screens, ceramics and manuscripts that tell the history of world art. Stroll through its 25 galleries and spend time in the 450 rooms that house the masterpieces - some familiar, others less well known - gathered from private and public collections around the world. Pause in its vast corridors, or visit one of the special exhibitions where works, drawn from our permanent collection, explore specific themes and subjects. This is the only museum to house Leonardo's Mona Lisa , a collection of Rembrandt's finest self-portraits, Velazquez's Las Meninas and Picasso's Guernica , as well as ceramics from China, Hokusai's woodblock prints, gold artefacts from Peru, paintings from the caves at Lascaux and works by Cy Twombly and Brice Marden.

With its colour-coded galleries, wall texts that clearly explain the movement, culture or theme surveyed within each room, and explanatory labels for each work, The Art Museum is spacious, easy to navigate, educational, inspiring and an exceptional visual feast.
