MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, BOSTON 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston 617-267-9300 THE INVENTION OF FANTASY EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY VENICE -- Through September 30, 2012. Venice in the eighteenth century, the age of Casanova. was one of the pleasure centers of Europe, famed for its the- ater and opera and its carnival maskers. Even today, the city, when compared with ordinary cities, appears to be a fantasy, a dream, a hallucina- tion. Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's voluptuous painted cloudscapes with figures opened illusionistic light- filled vistas in ceilings; his drawings and prints have a comparable aerial lightness and luminosity. He was assisted by his son Domenico, who, when he retired from painting about 1785, concentrated on making fin- ished drawings on biblical and mytho- logical themes, as well as remarkably playful and whimsical scenes of Venetian daily life. The Museum's The Milliner's Shop (above) is one of the finest of these drawings. Other artists in the exhibition include Canaletto and the early Piranesi. MUSEUM OF SCIENCE 1 Science Park, Boston, MA 617-723-2509 LOST EGYPT: ANCIENT SECRETS, MODERN SCIENCE -- Through September 3, 2012.

Through hands-on challenges, authentic artifacts, and guidance from real archeologists, visitors will unearth the mysteries of Egypt, its culture and its people. This interac- tive exhibit features a real human mummy and animal mummies, as well as scans, forensic facial recon- structions and for the first time ever, a life-size rapid prototype of a mummy in a stage of "unwrapping." Visitors can also explore a recreation of an Egyptian tomb and authentic art and artifacts from the daily life and funerary culture of ancient Egypt.
