**Picasso has left the building. Don't fret though, float like a butterfly, sting like a bee Muhammad Ali: I Am The Greatest will open on Friday, March 31. In the meantime, check out our other Las Vegas Art Galleries.**
Monet, Degas, van Gogh, Picasso. These are just a few of the impressive names echoed through the halls of the Bellagio's Gallery of Fine Art. Once or twice a year, the curators put their awesomely artsy brains together to bring world-class masterpieces to Las Vegas.
As if we all hadn't seen the über impressive Dale Chihuly flower sculpture on the lobby ceiling made of hand-blown glass (there are 2,000 flowers BTW), they go and blow our minds with big name artist's some of us have only heard about on TV. No need to point fingers, you know who you are.
Now, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is featuring "Town and Country: from Degas to Picasso" organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the exhibit features 47 works of art by some of the most iconic artists in history.
Perceptions will be brought to life through six themes of growing urbanizations during the 19th and 20th centuries: Realism and the Urban Artist; Daumier and Urban Realism; The Bourgeoisie and Countryside Retreats; The City as Muse; City Life – Seeing and Being Seen and Modernism; and Urban Disenchantment. Guests can find works of art from artists like Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, Jean-François Millet and many more.
