Composer-violinist Charles Martin Loeffler was one of Isabella Stewart Gardner’s closest friends. When Isabella completed her museum, Loeffler used its Music Room to debut “Pagan Poem,” one of his most important compositions. Loeffler and his friend Mabel Hunt Slater gave this cast of Loeffler’s hand to Gardner as Christmas present in 1914. Object: P.P. Caproni and Brother (active 1892 - 1927), Charles Martin Loeffler’s Hand, 1914, plaster.

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.

This illustration of a medicinal plant can be seen in a manuscript in the Tapestry Room. While Isabella did travel to the Middle East, and it’s possible that this is why the work appealed to her, the manuscript was purchased from a New York dealer with the help of Isabella’s friends Bernard Berenson and Denman Waldo Ross. Image: Abdallah ibn al-Fadl, Verbena Recta and Verbena Supina, 1224, ink and watercolor on paper.

In Isabella’s day, the Raphael Room had stunning hangings on either side of the fireplace, with detailed appliques, rich velvet background, and an estimated 40,000 sequins. Today our textile conservators are recreating these hangings with hand-stitched pieces that will be quilted together to create the final work!
