We hadn't been to the MFA in several years, but were in the Boston area to visit our son and daughter-in-law who bought tickets for the John Singer Sargent watercolors special exhibit. While best known for his portraits, this collection of more than 200 of his watercolors is not to be missed. Be sure to do the audio tour; it's phenomenal. Afterwards, we visited the permanent collection to view his portraits (e.g., the Daughters of Edwin Darcy Bolt). Amazingly, the elegant porcelain vases in the portrait are on either side of this beautiful painting.
We ran out of time to visit MFA's magnificent impressionist wing. Will just have to schedule a return visit.
