The Doré, Defense of Paris, It totally embodies a different kind of love – the love for one’s country. -Kelly, class of 2011

Edvard Munch’s The Seine at St. Cloud – after all Paris is the city of love. – Alex, class of 2013

Henry Fuseli’s The Dressing Room – I think it’s a lovely depiction of sisterly love. -Chelsea, class of 2011

Banquet Still Life with Ewer and Bread by Pieter Claesz – I love food! – John, class of 2012

The Bathus (Le Semaine des quatre jeudis) because there is something so nice (and lovely) about lazy mornings. – Joe, class of 2012

The Portrait of Matthew Vassar because I love going to school here! – Samantha, class of 2014
