About this title


The Museum of Fine Arts's first acquisition - presented before there was a building to house it - was a painting. Washington Allston's elijah in the Desert, given by the Hooper family in 1870. Since that time the paintings collection has been built by benefactors as astute as they were public-spirited, patrons whose special and sometimes even daring interests have given the collection its unique character. In Boston, more than in any other American city, the history of the museum's paintings is the history of the city's taste. This book, featuring paintings from the permanent collection of the MFA, salutes the boston patrons and the great works they gave to the museum.
