About This Item

Maureen Melton

This informal, anecdotal, and profusely illustrated social and architectural history traces the first 125 years of the MFA, from its beginnings as a repository for a lone armor collection to one of the world's leading arts institutions. Along the way, Maureen Melton briefly sketches the social and architectural transformation of Boston from the post-Civil War era to the present, showing how the museum's role has changed as a reflection of the times. Abundantly illustrated with photos from the museum's archives, this is a delightful souvenir for anyone who has ever enjoyed a visit to the MFA.
