Museum of Fine Arts Boston

A cold rainy Saturday is perfect for visiting museums!

Museum of Fine Arts Boston


I was very impressed with the enormous size of the museum.  The scale is equivalent to Metropolitan Museum or National Gallery.



My objective today was to see American Impressionistic paintings.  Many 19th century American Impressionist painters were active in New England area and this museum holds a large collection.  I was extremely excited to see works by my favorite artists, Childe Hassam, Robert Vonnoh, John Twachtman, and John Sargent.


"The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit" by John Sargent


"An Artist in His Studio" by John Sargent


There were many paintings I'd never seen before.

  1. One easy way to decorate a nursery is to use an image from art history. Many western painters have painted for children, such as this painting, by English artists Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7RP , should look good on the nursery wall.
    It's available as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your home, from wahooart.com. It's affordable too.
