This book will help you spend your time wisely at the museum. It does a good job of providing facts and context. Each of the paintings featured are worthy of the designation “masterpiece”. When you are home again, the book will be a lovely reminder of your visit.

Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts contains one of the most pleasing permanent collections in America. This book is a fine sampler of some favorites among the paintings, lavishly reproduced in color and featuring intelligent commentaries about each one. Highlights include famous works by Sargent, Rembrandt, Munch, and Renoir, although you may also discover some hidden gems that you were not previously aware of. If you have ever visited the musuem, this book makes a fine souvenir. If you have not, it will certainly whet your appetite. For anyone intereted in art, or wishing to be, this makes a good gift.
