Available for the first time in Japanese! This definitive, fully-illustrated guide to the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, features more than 500 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and decorative objects from throughout the MFA's extensive collections - many of them never before published. The book spans all times and cultures, presenting a vast array of artworks - Native American ceramics to European shoes, Egyptian funerary arts to Warhol silkscreens, Monet's Dance at Bougival, Paul Revere's Liberty Bowl, and photographs by Yousuf Karsh and Ansel Adams, to give only a small sampling. Each object is reproduced in vibrant color and accompanied by a brief, incisive commentary that highlights connections, challenges expectations, and showcases the wonders of this world-renowned museum.
