The eighth sign in the zodiac calendar, Scorpio, is represented by a starry scorpion. Those born under this sign (October 23–November 22) are considered passionate, persistent, and power-seeking. A sign governed by water, Scorpios are deeply attuned to their emotions and are known for their honesty, intuition, and sensuality. More than any other sign. Scorpios can seem mysterious even to those who know them well. 

With these virtues, collectors who are Scorpios are incisive—they can spot the best work in a show within moments—and, if their heart is set on it, will stop at nothing to make it theirs. Scorpio artists, meanwhile, are known for their conviction and expressive intensity—no placid tableaux here. Famous artists who were Scorpios include Pablo Picasso, Richard Serra, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Angelica Kauffman. 

Below, we’ve chosen our favorite artworks from the Artnet Gallery Network that capture the spirit of the Scorpio.
