I want to name an artwork I made but I am not a native English speaker. The title I have selected is vision, meaning having insight. The point is I don't know whether I should name it The Vision or Vision.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
An article up front seems redundant: "Vision" looks good to me.
To answer this question, consider standard usage of the definite article. At http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/english-grammar/determiners-and-quantifiers/definite-article, there's a fairly comprehensive list of situations where the definite article is used. At least one is relevant here.
"We use the definite article in front of a noun when we believe the hearer/reader knows exactly what we are referring to. ... because there is only one"
There is only one Mona Lisa, and just about every reader know exactly what the name refers to.
You could justify calling your painting "The Vision," since that title would refer to the only vision you were portraying.
