Dad’s Day

One day isn’t enough to celebrate dads, or the fathers found in the DMA collection. Artists have shown their appreciation for their old man by capturing him in paint and pen and below are a few examples from the Museum’s collection.

Friday Photos: Father Knows Best

Last month, we honored moms (and moms-to-be) with a photo post.  It only seems fair to do the same for dear old dad on this Father’s Day weekend.  Several of us have dads who are loyal followers of the DMA Educator Blog–they’ve even been known to comment on our posts a time or two.  To my dad, I say thanks for teaching me everything I know.  Except about art…you didn’t teach me anything there, but thanks for tolerating all of those Museum visits in Paris last summer.

To celebrate all dads, here are images of fathers both good and bad (I’m looking at you, Ugolino) from the DMA collection.  Happy Father’s Day!
