Museum of Fine Arts in Boston recently inaugurated a new wing which I had been wanting to see for a while. As it so happened that an exhibit called “Art of Americas” was being featured this President’s day weekend. With some respite from snow it turned out to be a perfect day to visit the museum.

This abstract silver sculpture greets you in the main cafeteria next to the new wing.

These European designer inspired chairs were made in the America in the 1800s.

This is a painting of the Hope family. They were a Dutch family into mercantile business.

I really liked this painting of a woman in a pensive mood. The frame is equally gorgeous. The period of American art was symbolized by paintings that were subdued.
