Medfield landmark star of MFA show

MEDFIELD

Art lovers flocking to the ``Americans in Paris: 1860-1900'' exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston are seeing famous pictures like ``Whistler's Mother'' and ``In the Luxembourg Gardens.''

But there's also a less-famous work depicting a scene many suburbanites drive by every day.

``Roadside Cottage'' (1890) by Dennis Miller Bunker still sits on a busy stretch of Route 109 in Medfield, more than a century after the young, Paris-trained artist painted its sun-dappled entryway.
