Yesterday morning we popped into Boston for a visit to the MFA which was having another free open house. (When did tickets go up to $20? Ouch. We get the museum pass which lets us in for $5 if it’s not a free day) The Japanese garden was finally open though all the blooming plants are done.
We visited the Cafe and Caberet exhibit which has moved downstairs and has more artwork than I recall seeing last time. I really enjoyed another chance to see these prints.
We also visited The Sower by Millet as well as The Sower by van Gogh which is here on loan from Amsterdam. After reading “Sunflowers” I found the paintings so much more interesting since the people in the portraits are now characters I know a little something about. The book is fictional but it’s written by an art historian and based in fact.
