Reader Pick: Love in the DMA's Collection

February is a month known for love. To celebrate love in the DMA’s collections, I would like you, the reader, to choose a work of art that best exemplifies love from the below objects. After selecting a work of art, leave a comment as to how you think it relates to love. Next Tuesday, I will let you know which work of art received the most votes. Let the voting begin!

    I think The Reading Lesson most exemplifies love because of the action being portrayed in the painting. It is easy to exchange kisses or hugs or words of love with another person, but teaching them (about anything) is truly caring for them. It takes time, it takes effort, and it takes giving a piece of yourself away.

    Hands down for the Tulip Chair. That juicy red color and sweet curves totally represent a beautiful seat of LOVE!

    Vouet’s Madonna and Child…such a gorgeously tactile work, and that sweet kiss is a great represenation of love!
