Fine Art Boston

In this one-hour presentation, explore the development of the fine arts in Boston by considering a series of paintings and sculptures selected as representative of the MFA's acquisitions for its first 100 years from 1870 to1970. Engage not only with the historical, aesthetic, and cultural context for these acquisitions, but also with the history of American and European art, the discipline of art history, and early public fine arts museums. 
Following the talk, consider key discussion points relating to the objects viewed and the contextual issues explored.
