Happy Purim! This 18th-century fan features a scene from the biblical Book of Esther. In it, Esther kneels before Ahasuerus, King of Persia. In the story of #Purim, the annual festival starting tonight, it was her intelligence and determination that saved the Jewish people.

"Driftwood" (1909) is the last of #WinslowHomer’s many paintings to depict a fearless sea-faring man—a theme he had explored since the 1880s in compositions like "The Fog Warning," also in the MFA's collection. The prolific artist was born in Boston #onthisday in 1836.

At a time when South Carolina law prohibited enslaved people from learning to read and write, Dave Drake inscribed many of his wares with verse. The couplet on this pot exemplifies the power and wit of his poetic voice: "I made this Jar for Cash- / though its called lucre trash."

Performing in the Basquiat exhibit @mfaboston in front of Lady Pink’s collaborative work with @jennyholzer is one of my top 5 musical experiences. To be surrounded by the legacy of hip-hop energy was magical. Hope y’all tune in to watch.

1/ The @MFABoston recently purchased this gorgeous, silver-gilt Torah Shield (1782), made to hang by chains over the Torah in a synagogue. The front features the Tablets of the Law flanked by Moses and Aaron, and the back is exquisitely engraved with Isaac Blessing Jacob.
