This "Head of a Nobleman," known as "The Josephson Head" is a supreme example of the distinctively realistic images that appeared during Ancient Egypt's Middle Kingdom. #HeartArt
Pictured: Head of a Nobleman (The Josephson Head), 1878–1841 BC

The varied brushstrokes in "Stour Valley and Dedham Church" (about 1815) capture the light and weather of the English landscape. It was painted by John Constable, born #OnThisDay in 1776.

What exactly are the cutting edge styles being used here?
Can't be only varied brushstrokes .....?

“I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize. But get used to me—black, confident, cocky. My name, not yours. My religion, not yours. My goals, my own. Get used to me.”

A 1966 photograph of #MuhammadAli by #GordonParks is now on view in our Sharf Visitor Center.

Gustave #Courbet was the self-styled leader of the Realist movement in French art. "The Quarry (La Curée)" (1856) features the artist himself, posed as a huntsman. Courbet was born #OnThisDay in 1819.

Ele foi um fantástico Pintor!! Observem a iluminação, concentrada nas figuras humanas e nos cachorros. A penumbra em volta, realça o realismo da cena. Magnífico!!!

“I am not afraid to exaggerate a contour, a form, or anything that gives more character and movement to the canvas.” William H. Johnson made this street scene in Cagnes-sur-Mer, an artists’ colony on the French Riviera. #HeartArt

Pictured: “Cagnes-sur-Mer,” 1928-29.

Perfect for the #FirstDayOfSummer—“Meditation by the Sea” (early 1860s), on view in the Joyce and Edward Linde Gallery. Can you name the famous New England beach?

Happy Father’s Day! Johannes Adam Simon Oertel’s “The Colgate Family” (1866) depicts manufacturer Samuel Colgate with his wife and their four sons. Can you spot another dad in the painting?

Paul #Gauguin, born #OnThisDay in 1848, spent extended periods in the rural community of Pont Aven, Brittany, in northwestern France. Gauguin painted evocative works, using color to expressive ends, and investing everyday life with symbolic, even religious, significance.

Pictured: “Landscape with Two Breton Women” (1889).

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.

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.

An incredible collection of art in downtown Boston that gives the better known Met in New York a run for its money. Expansive and well-curated, this museum will occupy the entirety of your day if you're an art fan. Definitely a must-see in Boston.

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.

Loved it. It's a really nice and peaceful place, there's a lot to see. Admission is free on Wednesdays (after 4:00pm I think), so this is a great opportunity for everyone to admire fine arts. One afternoon might not be enough to see everything on this museum so it's definitely worth coming back.

Great art, great food, and an all-around great atmosphere. I would recommend a visit anytime you find yourself in the Boston area with nothing better to do.
