No offense to your university dorm space, however itâ€™s got absolutely nothing regarding the walls associated with Museum of Fine Artâ€™s Gund Gallery. All springtime and summer time very long, theyâ€™re playing host to a retrospective of French painter and printmaker Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose commonly reproduced images surely called your collegiate cork board house. Youâ€™ve seen them: the can-can dancers, the Van Gogh portrait, and undoubtedly, the boudoir scenes and Moulin Rouge tableauxâ€”only this time around, theyâ€™re the real deal (and safe from campus-bookstore thumbtacks).
Placing this event together needed the assistance of an other iconic institution. In the 1st collaboration of its sort involving the Boston Public Library as well as the MFA, the latter borrowed through the formerâ€™s massive printing collection to get around 100 Lautrec originals, including mainly unseen sketches and drafts.
