BOSTON – On June 4, the Sidney and Esther Rabb Gallery of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in France reopens at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), after a four-month renovation. One of the most visited rooms in the Museum, the renovated space features 33 paintings and six sculptures. Portraiture, still lifes and scenes from daily life highlight the Museum’s world-class collection of French art of the period. Devoted to avant-garde artists working in France between about 1870 and 1900, the gallery features the achievements of Claude Monet (ten pictures), Edgar Degas (six pictures, two sculptures), Pierre-Auguste Renoir (six pictures, two sculptures) and Vincent van Gogh (three pictures). A selection of the MFA’s most iconic paintings are on view in the gallery, including Renoir’s Dance at Bougival (1883), Van Gogh’s The Postman Joseph Roulin (1888) and Monet’s Water Lilies (1907). Set on the second floor of the Museum’s Evans Wing, the gallery opens on the same day as the new Kunstkammer Gallery, which is devoted to precious works of European art primarily from the 16th and 17th centuries. The renovation of the Sidney and Esther Rabb Gallery was made possible with support from the Vance Wall Foundation.
