See the exhibition you helped create!
Boston loves Impressionism and always has. For the first time, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, invited the public to choose works for a special Impressionist exhibition. Choosing from a different themed group each week, fans voted for their favorite paintings from a selection of fifty works from the MFA's Impressionist collection, with the top thirty picks earning a spot in the exhibition "Boston Loves Impressionism." Voters made plain their love for Vincent van Gogh's masterpiece, Houses at Auvers (1890), which earned the most votes (4,464), edging out Claude Monet, who came in second place with 3,543 votes for his iconic Water Lilies (1907). Third place was taken by Edgar Degas' Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer (original model 1878-81, cast after 1921)--the only sculpture in the contest. These three top vote getters hold a place of honor at the entrance of the exhibition. Come see the exhibition that you helped to create.
