This painting stands out in the Gardner Museum, a French Rococo work hidden in plain sight among Italian Renaissance paintings. What we wonder about is the absence of the titular character. Venus is missing from ‘The Chariot of Venus’! Curators believe this work may be part of a larger painting that was later cut into sections. Image: François Boucher, The Chariot of Venus, 18th Century, oil on canvas.

This photo of the Museum’s Chapel features Paul César Helleu’s The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis. The painting is surrounded by dark wood and stained glass, some featuring images of Saint Denis and some from churches in France. The end result is a work of art within an installation that is a work of art itself, something Isabella was a master of. Image: Paul César Helleu, The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis, about 1891, oil on canvas.
