Art lovers, there really is a place for you in Las Vegas. Works by Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and other artists are coming to the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art at the Bellagio Las Vegas.

“Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso” illustrates each artist’s efforts to convey the “growing urbanization” in the U.S. and Europe during the 19th and early 20th centuries, according to a news release.

The show, organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, showcases pieces that contrast industrialized cities teeming with factories and soaring numbers of residents with the idyllic and pastoral countryside.
