A gift of 113 Dutch and Flemish masters vaults the Museum of Fine Arts into “the top ranks of museums showing the works of 17th-century Netherlandish art,” says MFA director Matthew Teitelbaum. To celebrate the donation from Boston-area collectors Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo and Susan and Matthew Weatherbie, the MFA has created a special installation showcasing artworks from the gift, on view starting Wednesday at 5 p.m. Make your way to Galleries 243 and 244, and here are some of the paintings you’ll see.
