The Los Angeles times asked the experts to name the greatest works from the permanent collections of Los Angeles museums. Eleven of LACMA’s permanently held artworks made the Times list. In era, subject, and form they are profoundly varied, ranging from ancient sandstone dryads to Georges de La Tour's seventeenth-century The Magdalen with the Smoking Flame to Vija Celmins’ monumental enamel-on-wood comb of 1970.
