The nucleus of the museum was provided by numerous art collectors, who wanted to make the paintings they had amassed available to the common public in a central place. On February 4, 1870, the Massachusetts Legislature granted a charter to a board of trustees for the founding of an art museum in Boston.

Congratulations on being the first individual to comment in the latest Hub in my museum / art history series.
