The visual arts: What I want to see

This gallary is a small collection of what I want to see in the world.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a world wonder. The towers original purpose was as a freestanding bell tower for the cathedral. It consists of Ionic columns and Roman arches that depict architecture way beyond the times. It is made of limestone interior with a marble outlay.
The Roman Colosseum was an amphitheater that hosted games all year round. Its oval structure is made of travertine, brick, and mortar. It has Roman arches and Doric columns that are combine with a post-and-lintel structure. Its Classic Greece and Romanesque style are in balance due to the repetition of the columns and arches.
To be clear, I want to see the true Mona Lisa. Leonardo da Vinci favored this painting. The woman in the painting is said to be a portrait of a prominent cloth merchant in the 1500's. The style of the Mona Lisa is High Renaissance due to the life like quality of the painting. Da Vinci used the element of shadows to give the lady a fuller appearance.
Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is an open composition painting by Vincent van Gogh. It uses horizontal and diagonal lines to bring focus to the lager sailboats. For example, the sandbar ends at the larger boat. Van Gogh's paintings are definitive due to his apparent brush strokes.
Auguste Rodin, a French artist, is famous for his unfinished work of art "The Gates of Hell". This particular piece, "The Kiss", was supposed to be placed with that artwork. The Kiss in this photograph is of bronze media. This statue is an Impressionist style work.
