You showed your love by voting with a big pink heart or two on Super Thursday and Valentine’s Day. Are you ready for the surprising results?

Super Thursday’s top three most-loved works are The Cat Mummy in the Collector’s Study, The Altarpiece with the Passion of Christ in the Northern European Gallery of our Medieval World section, and Trophime Bigot’s Judith Decapitating Holofernes (ca. 1640). On Valentine’s Day The Altarpiece again reigned supreme, along with the combination of the Marten’s Head and Veronese’s Portrait of Countess Livia da Porto Thiene and Her Daughter Deidamia. Our visitors weren’t shy about giving it up for Cordier’s African Venus, the late Medieval Crucified Christ in the Third Floor Lobby, and the inviting Banquet Couch in our Roman collection.

We learned that you treasure our Asian Link hallway, especially Buddha at the Moment of Victory. You adore our Islamic Gallery, and the smaller of our two Qur’ans on display really captured your attention. In our Collector’s Study, you responded to the metaphorical charm of the Renaissance Locks and Keys.

Thank you for visiting with us, and sharing in the love of art!
