The Chalcolithic period (Copper-Stone Age, ca. 5500–3500 BC) was an era of great social and technological development. Long before the pyramids were built in Egypt and writing was introduced in Mesopotamia, people in the Southern Levant—dwelling in the lands that today include Israel, Jordan, and their surrounding areas—were the first in the region to create metallurgy, temples, elaborate textiles, cash crops for export, and stratified societies.

We will look at both sculptures of the female form and sculptures by women artists from the collection of the Fine Arts Museums.

Intimate Impressionism includes nearly 70 Impressionist and Post-Impressionist still lifes, portraits, and landscapes whose charm and fluency invite close scrutiny. Included are significant works by Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, and Vincent van Gogh. Many of the intimately scaled paintings in the exhibition were displayed in domestic interiors, and they often became gifts shared among friends.
