From da Vinci to Bosch, the 10 Most Googled Paintings of 2020 The list of artworks is based on data from 155 different countries.
With access to museums and galleries restricted since the COVID-19 pandemic started, millions around the world have resorted to the internet to quell their thirst for fine art. So what major artworks have they been Googling since the virus took hold of the globe last year? A new study has the answers.
Using the online analytics tool Ahrefs, the arts and crafts tutorials website Diys.com mined the 10 most Googled paintings in the world in 2020. Based on data from 155 different countries, the company quantified the average global search volume of each painting per month.
The list consists of famous masterpieces from the Western canon of art history. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” ranks first among the most searched paintings of last year with over one million online searches on average each month. Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica” comes second, with almost half the monthly average search volume (454,500). In third is da Vinci’s Last Supper (343,000)
