In this masterpiece of the MFA collection, #Rembrandt seems to represent the daunting moments of conception and decision necessary to the creation of an artwork. The drama is intensified by the expressive use of light and shadow. Rembrandt was born #OnThisDay in 1606.

Pictured: "Artist in his Studio," about 1628.

His rendering of the light is a wonder to behold.  Rembrandt moved this on a considerable way from Caravaggio's almost black shadows.

Born #OnThisDay in 1907, #FridaKahlo was photographed by Imogen Cunningham in 1931. See the stunning portrait in a gallery dedicated to “Kahlo and Her Circle,” opening July 16.

Picasso's early cubist works are among his most abstract. No matter how difficult it may be to decipher the woman in this work, she is still there. #HeartArt

Essa faze Cubista de Pablo é de impressionante beleza!! A sutileza com que distribuia as formas, os claros e escuros, o "aparente" envelhecimento das cores, a total ausência de tons fortes , fazem dessa obra um magnífico exemplar dessa consagrada faze. Fantástico!!!

Camille #Pissarro, the oldest member of the #Impressionist group, was one of its most daring inventors. Painted with countless tiny, palpitating strokes, "Spring Pasture" (1889) shows his experimentation with Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism. The artist was born #OnThisDay in 1830. #HeartArt

The best-known likeness of the man who drafted the Declaration of Independence—adopted on the #FourthofJuly in 1776. This lifelike bust captures #ThomasJefferson as he looked in 1789.

Pictured: “Thomas Jefferson,” 1789, Jean-Antoine Houdon.

A vast collection of art from different eras and cultures. I loved their Impressionist room with Monet's paintings, as well as their Classical collection of statues and impressive mosaic from the Greeks and Romans. Semi-hidden is the extensive coin room showing off the crazy details and designs of ancient coins. We were in the museum for about one hour or so and I felt I barley scratched the surface of the collection. Definitely worth coming back to, time and time again.

Wow! Plan to spend several hours! There is so much to see here. I came to visit the current exhibit, which was quite brilliant (Asia - MegaCities), and was able to wander around and see a lot more. I ran out of time, actually, so this is on my "to-do list" when I return to Boston!

Wednesday nights are free admission with a recommended donation, making frequent trips well worth it. More than you could ever hope to see in one visit, including an entire room devoted to the history of stringed musical instruments.

TLDR: Artisitc Reflection, Five Galleries, Interesting If you are looking for an afternoon of subjective reflection on art, this museum will definitely provide that. The Museum of Fine Arts, will provide the an extensive and detailed gallery of art. It covers five main sections: - The art of the ancient world - The art of Asia, Ocenia and Africa - The art of the Americas - The art of Europe - Contemporary Art - (Extra: Special Exhibition) All of the exhibits had hundreds of different artifacts, each with a detailed description right below it. Visually the artifacts are amazing, it's like looking back in time. Knowing the history behind them really multiplies that experience And to add to the experience, in some areas they also added sections where you can see how they preserve all the pieces. Personally, it really helped me gain an appreciation to the people who work behind the scenes. I would provide a description of what this museum has in it but I would be doing it an injustice because the things I would mention would barely cover anything. For me, the art of the ancient world and the art of Asia, Oceania and Africa was the best part of the entire museum. But that's just a personal opinion. Also, they had an incredible historical coin section.

A world-class museum. Not as big as the Met in NYC, nor the Art Institute of Chicago—and of course not as extensive as the Louvre—but really great. Choice works, beautifully exhibited. If you like museums such as those mentioned above, don't miss MFA Boston.

Great, great museum. So much to see and do. You can easily spend a full day here, and still miss things. I think you get a lot for the money, parking is close and it is a beautiful area of Boston.
