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 theater and opera and its carnival maskers. Even today, the city, when compared with ordinary cities, appears to be a fantasy, a dream, a hallucination. Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's volup- tuous painted cloudscapes with fig- ures 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 M'dliner's Shop is one of the finest of these drawings. Other artists in the exhibition include Canaletto and the early Piranesi.

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."
