Fresh off the walls of New York City's Frick Collection, a small installation of three monumental works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir just opened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It's a reunion of sorts.  The trio of life-sized paintings hasn't been shown together at the MFA since 1986.

WBUR's Andrea Shea was at the museum as they were being installed.
