The second sign in the zodiac calendar, Taurus, is represented by the bull constellation, and those born under the sign (April 20–May 20) are said to share many qualities with the noble creature.

While devout lovers of luxury, Taureans are also known for being hard-working, intelligent, dependable, and, yes, a little bit stubborn. Taurus is an earth sign, which means it keeps its focus on worldly pleasures. When the time comes for rest, no zodiac sign enjoys relaxation more than this one. Taureans celebrate a life of sensuality, lavish meals, and lots of naps.

When it comes to art, those born under this sign are ideal collectors. They need something to gaze at while they’re lazing about at home, though they might not be willing to deviate from their tastes. Famous artists who were Tauruses include Albrecht Durer, Tamara de Lempicka, and Cy Twombly.

To celebrate Taurus season, we’ve explored the Artnet Gallery Network to find artworks that celebrate the lavish, lazy, and loving qualities that define this zodiac sign.
