“I was just amazed with the wide range of historical and modern works of art available for viewing”
One of my favorite exhibits was Rembrandt the Etcher, from rough sketches to highly detailed overlaying compositions these etchings were as beautiful as they are unique. Etching as a printmaking medium emerged around the 16th century but the creative potential was unleashed around 1630 just around the time of Rembrandt’s work.
Although the entire museum offered up something interesting to investigate around each and every corner; I found the Egyptian exhibits and art to be right up my alley and something I have always had a big interest in.
Seeing these artifacts with the incredible detail based on their age was just amazing, and I definitely need to head back again because there just wasn’t enough time.
Be sure to check out the Mummies exhibit in Gallery 109 if you make you way to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, you won’t be let down with the amount of Egyptian artifacts under this one roof.
I found myself drawn to one piece of art in the Contemporary Gallery, so much so I could have photographed this for hours. A play with reflections, light and glass bottles pulled me back each time I started to walk away, again and again I found myself composing different shots as almost creating art from art.
What do you think? Although this photograph was taken through a glass case I love the abstract feel and the tonal range it presents, I’m really looking forward to making this a gallery wrap print.
