You’re probably aware, but the MIA really had a thing for Corot and there are like 15 on permanent display, including a couple I know I’ve seen reproduced in art books (unlike these). Show some hometown love.

Corot was one of the most collected 19th century French artists, so any major American art museum has a couple pieces by him that vary by quality. The first one cannot travel, but the second one was included in the mid 90s Corot show that was at the Met.

The MIA has some great paintings – the late Goya self portrait, Poussin Germanicus, and Rembrandt Lucretia to name a few.

The MIA is fairly underrated, in my opinion. It may not have as many star paintings(although the ones mentioned and the Delacroix are all terrific) but it has a a solid group of nearly everything.
