Haven't experienced Life, Death & Revelry for yourself? Here's what the Boston Globe had to say! Our “cosmic” 3D video installation feels, “like you’re looking at the afterlife.” Read on and visit us today: http://bit.ly/2IIuaD6

    At the Gardner, death gets a new lease on life - The Boston Globe
    The Queen of Spain loved it. Napoleon Bonaparte nearly stole it. Pope Pius VII rescued it. And, when it went up for sale in 1897, near its 1,672nd birthday, Isabella Stewart Gardner had to have it.

Landscape architecture is a real art form, but it wasn’t recognized as such until the early 1900s. Isabella, always ahead of the game, constructed her Museum and its lush Courtyard to be impeccably designed and aesthetically beautiful. 🌸

These remnants of Reims Cathedral look more like a Mondrian painting than Gothic stained glass! After being destroyed in WWI, an American ambulance driver collected some of the pieces and had them reset. He then gifted the glass to Isabella in 1919. Object: French, Fragments from Reims Cathedral, 18th century, stained glass.

A courtly couple decorate the center of this Iranian ceramic plate.
