The ninth sign in the zodiac calendar, Sagittarius is represented by the celestial archer in the form of either a man or a centaur. Those born under the sign (November 22–December 21) are the zodiac’s great adventurers and often some of the best storytellers. This zodiac is the season of wonderment. It is ruled by the planet of Jupiter, which embodies growth and abundance. 

Sagittariuses have a talent for envisioning new worlds or experiences—and those are traits that influence their approach to art as well. As collectors, Sagittariuses seek works that embody sacred or spiritual ideas—but not without a sense of humor. They are drawn to the poetic and unanswerable questions life offers—and, as consummate travelers, you will find Sagittarius collectors at the most far-flung of art fairs.

Famous Sagittarian artists include Diego Rivera, Kara Walker, Wassily Kandinsky, and Marina Abramovic. 

To celebrate the zodiac season, we’ve explored the Artnet Gallery Network to find artworks that celebrate the passionate, poetic, and playful qualities that define this sign.
