Fresh off the popular exhibition of “Monet and Boston: Lasting Impression,” which was presented in honor of the Museum’s 150th anniversary in 2020, the MFA is back with “Monet and Boston: Legacy Illuminated.” The exhibit highlights 25 masterpieces by the artist showcased from the MFA’s extraordinary holdings of his work. Additional pieces have been loaned from local private collections. The exhibition begins with a look at Monet’s development and early career. Special attention is paid to his engagement with Japanese art through juxtapositions of the artist’s paintings with prints from the MFA’s renowned ukiyo-e collection.
While Monet never traveled to Boston himself, but even during his lifetime his paintings could be found in great numbers throughout of the city.
