Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS
Open through December 28, 2014
The first comprehensive retrospective of artist Jamie Wyeth will examine his imaginative approach to realism over the course of six decades, from his earliest childhood drawings through various recurring themes inspired by the people, places, and objects that populate his world. A member of a family of artists, Jamie Wyeth has followed a unique path, training with his aunt Carolyn after leaving school at age 11, studying anatomy in a New York City morgue and working in Andy Warhol’s New York studio, The Factory. Jamie Wyeth will include approximately 100 paintings, works on paper, illustrations, and assemblages created by the artist, many in a range of "combined mediums," his preferred term for the distinctive technique he brings to his compositions.
Goya: Order and Disorder
Open through January 9, 2015
One of the titans of European art, Francisco Goya (1746–1828) witnessed a time of revolution and sweeping change in thought and behavior. As 18th-century culture gave way to the modern era, Goya’s penetrating gaze sought new means to capture human experience, both as he observed it, and as his imagination and artistic gifts transformed it. Goya: Order and Disorder takes an innovative approach, organizing the extreme variety of the artist’s output thematically. The exhibition employs the poles of order and disorder to structure Goya’s creativity, moving from dignified portraits and daily rituals to the chaos of war and the pandemonium of the Bordeaux bull ring. The largest Goya exhibition in North America in a quarter century, Goya: Order and Disorder is on view only at the MFA.
Jasper Johns: Picture Puzzles
Open through January 4, 2015
One of the greatest American draftsmen and creative printmakers from the 1960s to the present, Jasper Johns introduced new conceptual ideas about representation by focusing on signs and symbols that were inherently flat, such as numbers, flags, and targets. His works often involve a playful dialogue between art and illusion, between three-dimensionality and flatness, and between images and words. The artist’s prints are sophisticated variations on his paintings, and the idea of serial repetition with variation also plays a prominent role in his work. Jasper Johns: Picture Puzzles consists of 22 works by Johns, including prints, drawings, and relief sculpture.
Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen
Open through March 8, 2015
Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen presents designer gowns and exquisite jewelry from the 1930s and ‘40s—the most glamorous years of Hollywood film. The exhibition focuses on the iconic style of sultry starlets of the period, including Gloria Swanson, Anna May Wong, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, and Joan Crawford. Along with eye-catching gowns once worn by famous figures and the sparkling jewels that contributed to their allure from the MFA and private collections, photography by Edward Steichen along with period photographs, film stills, and film clips capture the style of the silver screen era.
