UK Mona LisaIn September, 2022, a team of researchers over at Perspectus Global conducted a nationwide survey to find out what's the most popular piece of art among the people living in the UK. Or to be more specific about it, two thousand people living in the UK (aged 18 and over), which eventually resulted in the following list.

This survey also revealed that 58 percent of those people polled have recently become more inspired by both classic and contemporary art, while a massive 74 percent considered themselves to be art lovers. Having said that, though, it also revealed that the average Brit will only visit five art exhibitions within a single year, and according to the data, London is the home to the largest number of self-confessed art lovers (84 percent), which is closely followed by Birmingham (81 percent) and Leeds (80 percent).

In closing, I'd like to thank the team over at Perspectus Global for allowing me to publish their findings in this article, before encouraging you to check out their official website.
