The Museum of Fine Art in Boston is not a museum to be tackled lightly; I’ve been twice and still have not seen it all. Between by two trips over summer and Thanksgiving, I have tried to catalogue the pieces from the AP Art History 250 curriculum owned by the MFA with their locations (exactly like I did for the Metropolitan Museum in New York).
Disclaimer: I only choose the pieces that were the EXACT ones from the 250; if you want to see a more comprehensive list of pieces from the 250 I’ve seen check out this post HERE.
Location: Gallery 207, George D. and Margo Behrakis Gallery (these were a lot smaller in person than I expected and I was disappointed)
Location: Gallery 251, The Beal Gallery (I almost missed this piece because its tucked into a corner by the doorway to another room, awful spot!)
Location: Gallery 255, Sidney and Esther Rabb Gallery (you can’t miss this piece because it takes up one whole wall by itself)
Location: this was a special exhibit about Hokusai, so I do not know if it is permanently on display and apparently the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC also owns a copy.
