Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris, emotion from stone
Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris...believe it or not, this is one of the most beautiful places to tour in Paris, yet most never get the chance. Paris is like an onion, you must continue to peel off the layers...and I still have several layers to go, even though I lived there three years and have returned numerous times...
Some may not recognize it as art, but I believe cemetery art is moving. Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris has this weeping woman statue.

headless angel statue
I've loved this sculpture since I first saw a slide of it in an art history class 20 years ago. Then I bumped into her "in person" at the Louvre. Upon spotting her, I got a lump in my throat; the museum was crowded, I was looking at my map, there was the din of thousands of people talking...I very easily could have missed her. She's hard to miss, too, situated at the top of a staircase. But if felt like something pulled my focus away from where I was to look at her. I stood there a long time.

The Radcliffe Camera at Oxford University, built in 1737-1749. It is the earliest example of a circular library in England, and amusingly, according to Wikipedia, J. R. R. Tolkien (author of The Lord of the Rings) remarked that the building resembled Sauron's temple to Morgoth on Númenor. It is also mentioned in 'The Notion Club Papers'.

Michelangelos pieta- such an amazing sculpture, need to see it in real life
"Pietà" (1499) Michelangelo. Saint Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Rome, Italy. It is the 1st of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French cardinal Jean de Billheres. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal's funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel as one enters the basilica. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed & balances Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.
Michelangelo "The Pieta" Renaissance art. Saw this in person when I was 5. @kimdheadlee
Created by Michelangelo (1475-1564), the Pieta depicts the Virgin Mary holding her only son, Jesus Christ, in her arms. Prior to sculpting the Pieta, Michelangelo was not a very known artist. He was only in his early twenties when he was told, in 1498, to do a life sized sculpture of the Virgin Mary holding her son in her arms. In about two years, from a single slab of marble, Michelangelo created one of the most beautiful sculptures ever. Pieta is housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City.
