Can you tell we’re only halfway through cleaning? 🌓 This sculpture of Virgin and Child might look a little two-faced now, but soon will be fully restored and back on display in the Long Gallery! Object: Imitator of Antonio Rossellino, Virgin and Child, before 1888, marble.

    Make Music celebrates the summer solstice with 100 free performances - The Boston Globe

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.
