Check out the Elegant Contortions of Renaissance art in Boston
From 09 July 2013 To 20 March 2014Address
Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115
Almost all of us will have seen examples of Renaissance art, whether it is in churches or on the walls of art galleries.
However, most people will probably not have stopped to consider the poses of the people in the pictures - something guests at Boston hotels will be able to rectify thanks to a special exhibition in the city soon.
The Museum of Fine Art will be hosting Elegant Contortions - Renaissance Prints between July 9th this year and March 20th 2014 to demonstrate how 'mannerism' evolved after the death of Raphael in 1520.
This saw painters increasingly begin to use elongated proportions, exaggerated postures and even eroticism in their portraits, a clear departure from the harmony and balance of the High Renaissance.
It is sure to be interesting to art lovers and history buffs alike, so will be well worth checking out on any visit to the city.
Guests at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston can reach the museum in just over ten minutes by road.
