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.

Ten large Flemish tapestries line the walls of the Tapestry Room, depicting episodes from the lives of the ancient Persian king Cyrus the Great and the biblical patriarch Abraham. In her typical eclectic fashion, Isabella intermingled the two tapestry cycles and hung them in an order known only to her. You can tell the two cycles apart by looking at the top of each scene: the Abraham tapestries have a Latin inscription (shown at the center of this image), while the Cyrus tapestries do not (tapestry at left of image).

Giovanni di Paolo excelled at narrative subjects, and this painting is one of his finest surviving examples. Isabella prized early Renaissance paintings from Siena for their exquisite details and jewel-like finishes. When Berenson recommended this one, he observed that Giovanni di Paolo is “all the rage now because the collectors not only of paintings, but of objets d’art are after him, and paying long prices for him.” Image: Giovanni di Paolo (1398 - 1482), Christ Disputing in the Temple, about 1450 - 1459, Tempera on canvas on a modern panel.
