Excerpt from Boston Painters: 1720-1940

It was the intention of those who selected the work not only to present ex amples by the most familiar names but to include pictures which, while not by an artist of wide repute, deserved attention for reasons of their content and quality. These pictures have, indeed, proven to be among the most interest ing of those selected.

While an exhibition of this kind, chosen on the basis of area and period must by its very nature lack thematic cohesiveness, the enormous variety and richness of Boston's social, cultural, political as well as artistic history from its beginnings as a colonial center to recent times are reflected in the paintings.

Some of the paintings refer to Boston's early families, its first hospitals, schools and other institutions, while others reflect the stylistic and esthetic influences which would go on to affect the subsequent development of art in America. Still other paintings in the group depict the physical nature of the Boston Area and its changing appearance over the centuries.
