The sixth sign in the zodiac calendar, Virgo, is represented by the celestial maiden, and those born under the sign (August 23–September 22) are the zodiac’s loyal perfectionists. Industrious and practical, this sign’s quest for excellence sometimes leaves them outwardly anxious. But on the inside, Virgos are among the most kind and helping of the signs. 

Virgos are methodical by nature and have a talent for recognizing patterns in the world around them (and sometimes inventing them). As art collectors, they are likely drawn to intensely considered works and artists’ with a distinctive process. Theory is important to these natural academics. What’s more, Virgos will want to collect the very best and will only go with their first-choice works. Virgos commit deeply to their projects and will often devote themselves fully to building a preeminent collection (this is no mere whimsy for them). Virgos are modest and intellectually rigorous, however, and will not be drawn to works they consider flashy or trendy. 

Famous artists who were Virgos include Ai Weiwei, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, Jacob Lawrence, and Rufino Tamayo. To celebrate the zodiac season, we’ve explored the Artnet Gallery Network to find artworks that celebrate the considered, detail-oriented, and down-to-earth traits that define this sign.
