When you visit the Veronese Room, be sure to look up! Crowned with flowers of Cupid in a court of gods and goddesses, The Coronation of Hebe was a subject fit for the queen of Fenway Court. 👑 Image: Studio of Paolo Veronese, The Coronation of Hebe, 1580-1589, oil on canvas.

Isabella disliked the mausoleum-like spaces of American museums of her time, thus she designed the flower-filled courtyard you see today!

Isabella loved modern dance, and even invited American dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis to perform at the Gardner Museum in 1908. This caused quite a scandal, as Ruth danced barefoot! 😱

We’ve been head-over-heels for Fra Angelico lately (can you blame us?) but our art collection has many more Madonnas to behold! This 16th century painting has similar radiating gold lines like the ones in Fra Angelico’s reliquaries, but the bright color palette and botanical imagery put this painting in a category all on its own. Image: After Martin Schongauer, The Virgin and Child of the Rose Bower (detail), mid 16th century, oil on panel.
