This event has ended.

The collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), one of the world’s foremost in terms of quality and scale, was built by Boston citizens, private collectors, and companies without financial support from the federal or state government. This exhibition will cast light on the collectors who built up the museum’s holdings and feature a selection of 80 works from the MFA’s collection. Highlights include ancient Egyptian art presented alongside background on archeological excavations, Japanese and Chinese art gems by Utamaro and Soga Shohaku, French paintings by Monet and Van Gogh — artists long beloved to Bostonians — and contemporary art masterpieces.
