Gallery Review #1

My first art gallery review is about "Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston." I went to the Bellagio Fine Arts Gallery, it showcases 34 paintings spanning the century from 1860 - 1950, telling the story of women artists, their activism and their artistic achievements. I viewed this exhibit with my mother and this is our first time in an art gallery. Before we entered the room the lady gave us the audio guide for the gallery, it looks like an old cellphone back in the earlier decades. As I walked through the door, I saw a lot of paintings on the wall with different sizes and there were a few people inside the gallery. I felt nostalgic when I saw the paintings, questioning myself that what if I was born in the past and lived in those days.

Now I would like to review three works and share what I have learned in these paintings.

To begin, the first piece I am going to review is the Woman in a Fur Hat
