Engage your students with the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to illustrate themes and concepts in any discipline.

Session 3: Entering a Modern World (1900-1950)

Our second Distance Learning discussion will build upon our understanding of American Art and the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston through looking at the period of time between from 1900-1950. We will discuss some, but not all of the slides included in the lesson below.

In this session we will look at how different artists, and groups of artists, responded to a changing America. Specifically in this session, we look at those who were interested in Realism and those interested in Abstraction.
