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.
