Morning departure: Meet our private coach with tour host Mickey Myers and Goodspeed & Bach trip director Deb Flanders and depart for Boston and the Fine Arts Museum for two exhibits- “Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris” and “Frida Kahlo and Arte Popular.”  

You’ll explore the celebrity culture of Lautrec’s time and the artist’s fascination with the personal lives of les stars as well as the roles that they played. With expressive lines and brazen colors, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 – 1901) depicted the defining gestures, costumes, and expressions of spectacular performers, many of whom were his personal friends, and ultimately the subject of his most popular art, the modern large-scale poster. The exhibition comprises nearly 200 works; highlighting both Lautrec’s works those of friends who influenced him, including Degas and Bonnard.

Like many artists in Mexico City’s vibrant intellectual circles, Frida Kahlo (1907–1954) avidly collected traditional Mexican folk art—arte popular—as a celebration of Mexican national culture. She drew inspiration from these objects, seizing on their political significance after the Mexican Revolution and incorporating their visual and material qualities into her now iconic paintings.  Disabled by polio and a serious bus accident, Kahlo turned to art at a young age though she remained in the shadow of her artist husband, Diego Rivera, until the 1970’s, when she soared into the art history of the 20th Century.   

Afterward enjoy dinner together at the New American Cafe that was selected as one of the best museum restaurants in the US by Food & Wine in 2014. Return to Vermont after dinner.
