Winner of the Historic New England Book Prize (2013)

The Boston Athen#65533;um played a vital role in founding the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, a fact that is not widely known. This book details this important relationship, from its inception through the museum's early years when the Athen#65533;um's continued support ensured the young institution's survival.

This historic partnership was remarkable in its intensity, intimacy, and informality, yet its details have never been fully documented. Based on extensive new research, With #65533;clat chronicles the joint endeavor in greater detail than ever before and places it in the context of Boston's changing cultural landscape. This extraordinary story will appeal to those who know these wonderful institutions or are interested in the history of American museums.
