1. Court of Benin pendant mask, Metropolitan Museum of Art.
2. Double eagle pendant. Met Museum.
3. Frank Lloyd Wright room, Met Museum.
4. Tiffany window, Met Museum.

6. Matisse's Red Studio, MoMA
7. Vermeer's Artist's Studio, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. (Although I've never seen it in person, I've admired this painting since Art History 101.)

10. Hughes's April Love, Tate Britain.

I've already tagged a few people with an earlier meme, but if you want to participate, do post your 20 random things on your blog.
