      Museum of Fine Arts Small-Group Tour with Art Historian

      Boston, Massachusetts, USA
      From (USD) $111 Per Person (Minimum 2)
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known as a "docent" (from the Latin for teacher), this Ph.D. and M.A.-level scholar-guide will make the difference between seeing the art and understanding it on a deeper level.
      • The museum: Founded in 1870, this is the country's 4th-largest art museum, and continues to renovate and expand even today. It's an acknowledged jewel in the crown of American art institutions, and a collection with few peers.
      • The artworks: Focus is a key aspect of touring a museum this large. This walk sets its sights on galleries displaying Renaissance, Baroque, American and Modern works – a trajectory that travels from Donatello and Fra Angelico, to portraiture by colonial era masters Copley and Revere, to 19th century greats like Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent, to paintings by Matisse, Picasso and the 20th century moderns.
      • Context & backstories: Subject matter, technique, aesthetics and artistic influences will all be looked at, along with less visible aspects of these masterworks – the intriguing social and political forces at work at the time of their creation.
      • Undivided attention: With a max group size of six, you'll be free to interact directly with your docent, get in-depth answers to your questions, perhaps even tweak the experience based on how the conversation unfolds.
