Excerpt from Boston Painters: 1720-1940

The task of assembling an exhibition of paintings by artists who have contributed significantly to the development of Boston's heritage over the past two and one-half centuries has been a difficult but rewarding one. While limitations of time and space have necessarily forced the selection to be less than all-inclusive, serious effort was made to choose paintings for their value as works of art and in many cases, for the significance of the subject in relation to the Boston area.

It was the intention of those who selected the work not only to present examples 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 interesting 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.

The role of the University in the city has become, over the years, increasingly that of an active participant in the cultural and social development of the urban environment. Part of its responsibility lies in reflecting the traditions and illuminating the past of the city within which the University lives. It is hoped that in presenting this Exhibition of Boston Painters, Boston University's School of Fine and Applied Arts is helping to do just that.
