Join Erica Hirshler, senior curator of American paintings at the MFA, curator of the current Hyman Bloom exhibition and author of the MFA’s Hyman Bloom catalog, for a private tour of “Hyman Bloom: Matters of Life and Death.”

This exhibition includes approximately 70 dramatic paintings and drawings from public and private collections—including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Addison Gallery of American Art—that chart the artist’s career as well as his constant interest in the human body. Bloom’s complex works draw upon the artist’s Jewish faith, his interest in Eastern religions and his transcendent belief in regeneration. In “Female Corpse, Back View” (1947), he renders a decomposing cadaver with a palette of rich colors. As he remarked, in such images “the paradox of the harrowing and the beautiful could be brought into unity.”

This is a private tour for the Vilna Shul and is limited to 15 people due to the size of the gallery. Walk-in patrons will not be accommodated. You must register in advance for this tour.

The tour will begin promptly at 5:15 p.m. and last 45-60 minutes.
