Aristotle was one of the most prominent philosophers in the entire history, and he gave one of the best explanations of art. He said that art is the realisation of a true idea in an external form, he explained that humans get pleasure from art because of the relatability of art and life. Art galleries are one of the best places to witness art, and there are thousands of art galleries around the globe representing various forms of art from different cultures and civilisations. Mr Mobi Casino has conducted a survey of the most famous art galleries around the world and based on the result the below list of top art galleries is created.
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
