Pictured here is Isabella being escorted off of her gondola in Venice—a favorite travel destination of hers that inspired her to create the Gardner Museum in its unique Venetian style. #GardnerMuseum

This silver and enamel opium box has Chinese poetry enameled on the sides. Around the box it reads, “Abode of the mountain resting on a cloud / A fresh rain passed over this lonely mountain, and the weather toward evening changed into autumn / Through repose become non-desiring: thus to grow no old is the way of Taoist Immortals. Written in kui-wei.” (kui-wei indicates the date). Object: Feng Hua, Opium Box, 1883, silver and enamel.

Happy birthday, John Singer Sargent! Sargent and Isabella were close friends from their introduction in 1886 until her death in 1924. Sargent sometimes used the Gothic Room as a studio and Gardner ultimately owned over 60 works by Sargent (who in turn painted her three times!). #OnThisDay #JohnSingerSargent Image: John Singer Sargent (1856 - 1925), El Jaleo, 1882, oil on canvas.
