EDWARDIAN OPULENCE: BRITISH ART AT THE DAWN OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY A survey of British art that deepens our idea of a period that serves, rather thinly, as the backdrop to “Downton Abbey.” Through June 2. Yale Center for
British Art, New Haven. 877-274-8278, britishart.yale.edu

VISITING MASTERPIECES: CEZANNE’S “THE LARGE BATHERS” Cezanne’s late masterpiece is on show at the MFA alongside Gauguin’s similarly Arcadian “Where Do We Come From, Who Are We, Where Are We Going?” A fruitful pairing. Through May 12. Museum of Fine Arts. 617-267-9300, www.mfa.org
