Over the course of her seven-decade-long career, Imogen Cunningham established herself as a major figure of Modernism—a rare female in what was still a mostly male world. Our new exhibition of her work opens Saturday!
Pictured: “Hen and Chickens,” about 1929.

It's Modern Monday! Charles Sheeler's “View of New York” (1931) is a paradox: we see a view not of the city but of the interior of the artist’s studio—camera draped in black, chair empty, lamp unlit, and, through the window, cloudy sky.

Who’s that girl? It’s unlikely she’s an actual person. The young woman, who appears at once innocent and seductive, is probably the product of artist Jean-Baptiste Greuze’s imagination. He was born #OnThisDay in 1725.
Pictured: “The White Hat,” about 1780, on view in our European Galleries.

American modernist photographers like #EdwardWeston championed graphic black-and-white imagery taken with large-format cameras that allowed for maximum sharpness and great depth of field. Working in California, Weston was inspired to make close-ups of everyday objects—fruits, vegetables, shells and bones—that resulted in simple volumetric forms to rival the sculpture of Constantin Brancusi. #WorldPhotoDay

Can't get enough of the American Moderns' ability to communicate the arresting, richly nuanced, abstractly powerful.

Hyman Bloom’s extraordinary images of cadavers are both horrifying in their frankness and startling in their masterful handling of heavily worked paint and lush colors. See more works by Bloom, born #OnThisDay in 1913, in “Making Modern.”

It's Modern Monday! German artist Hans Hofmann established himself as one of American art’s most important figures—a teacher and mentor to countless young artists and a major abstract painter in his own right. Through his students—among them Helen Frankenthaler, Franz Klein, Ray Eames, Louise Nevelson, and Marisol Escobar—Hofmann helped shape American art for generations.

“If my painting is what I have to give back to the world for what the world gives to me, I may say that these paintings are what I have to give at present for what three months in Hawaii gave to me…" —#GeorgiaOKeeffe #ArtQuote
See “Fishhook from Hawaii No. 2” (1939) and other paintings by O’Keeffe in “Making Modern.”

Active on the West Coast, #CharlesSheeler was one of the great Machine Age photographers. This image made for the Ford Motor Company became one of his best-known works and an icon of modern photography. In it, he transforms a massive and clamorous factory into a perfectly balanced, Cubist composition. #WorldPhotoDay
Pictured: “Criss-Crossed Conveyors, Ford Plant, River Rouge,” 1927, The Lane Collection.

Boston was an important center for #photography in the mid-19th century US, and local partners Southworth and Hawes were among the most prominent daguerreotypists in the country. They specialized in society portraits, but also produced a small number of family portraits, such as this 1855 image of Hawes’ wife Nancy and his daughter Marion. #WorldPhotoDay

It's Modern Monday! The installation “Beckmann in America” highlights the influence of German-born artists Max Beckmann and Karl Zerbe. After fleeing Germany in the 1930s, both immigrated to the US and had a lasting impact on American artists.
Pictured: “Still Life with Three Skulls,” (1945, Max Beckmann), part of "Making Modern" at the MFA.

This is a great museum with lots of beautiful art. My favorite part was all of the classic paintings. The museum itself is huge! The organization is well laid out, but don't be afraid to ask someone to point you in the right direction. There was a long line to check in, but it moved very fast. Staff is very friendly and location is very convenient. Overall, very impressed and hope to make it back soon.

We're members and happily so. We pop in for an hour or a day and always find something new to explore. The food courts are great. The people are friendly. What can I say? It's worth every penny.

The only thing keeping this from a 5 star review is the fact that the Monet room was roped off for maintenance while we were there... and it was ONE of the major exhibits we came to see. Otherwise, I was in AWE. There are shops and restaurants inside and the building its exquisite!

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.

Would rate a six. One of the best museums on the east coast. It's a bit overwhelming, so pick a couple galleries, then grab something sweet at the espresso bar. The restaurant in the middle is a great place to be seen. 🙃

Don’t miss the free tours inside the museum, they will show you some of the most valuable pieces they have. I love the Impressionist paintings, they have lot of paintings from this style. They also have beautiful paintings of graduated students of the museum that are beautiful.

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.
