Bernard M. Keyes


Massachusetts born Bernard Keyes was a graduate of both the prestigious Boston Museum School of Fine Arts and Harvard University’s Fogg Art Museum School. At the Fogg, Keyes was awarded the Paige traveling scholarship for 1921-1922. Upon his return to the States, Keyes took up a teaching position at the MFA, much like his mentor Frank Benson did years earlier. Benson had retired in 1913 and had moved from figurative Impressionism to sporting images, a shift the younger artist followed.
