SR Set: American Painting in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
CDR-1122
Title: SR Set: American Painting in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Description: The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, owns one of the nation’s preeminent collections of American paintings.  The very first object of any kind to enter the Museum's collection in 1870, the year of its founding, was American: Elijah in the Desert, by Washington Allston.  Since then the collection has grown to include some of the best-loved masterpieces of American art by John Singer Sargent, Gilbert Stuart, John Singleton Copley, Winslow Homer and Mary Cassatt, to name a few.  By the early 1900s, the Museum had acquired an important collection of paintings. The gift of the M. and M. Karolik Collection of Eighteenth-Century American Arts in 1939 established the MFA as a major repository of paintings from urban centers. The second major gift of the Karoliks, in 1947, of American paintings created between 1815 and 1865, brought great strength in the Hudson River school, American genre painting, and American folk painting. Boston collectors have given generously to the Museum, and many of its finest works of art, including masterpieces by Copley, Stuart, and Sargent, were given by descendants of the sitters or original owners.

SR Set: Artistic Japanese Postcards from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts
CDR-1145
Title: SR Set: Artistic Japanese Postcards from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts
Description: Postcards were extremely popular in Japan in the early 1900s; the lithographed cards replacing traditional woodblock prints in popularity. At that time Japan was rapidly entering western influenced global society and their arts began to reflect a blend of traditional styles with new western influence. Our selection of distinctive postcards from the extensive collection of Leonard Lauder at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston reflects the marriage of east/west in a range of subjects and depictions: modern images from the eleventh century Tale of Genji; contemporary depictions of traditional themes such as the Twelve Hours of the Yoshiwara, the pleasure quarters of Edo; depictions of the Russo Japanese War of 1904-1905; advertising themes; and Art Nouveau and Art Deco New Year's cards. (see "Art of the Japanese Postcard, The Leonard A. Lauder Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston," 2004, published by MFA Publications (May 2010) Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections.
