This photo of the Museum’s Chapel features Paul César Helleu’s The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis. The painting is surrounded by dark wood and stained glass, some featuring images of Saint Denis and some from churches in France. The end result is a work of art within an installation that is a work of art itself, something Isabella was a master of. Image: Paul César Helleu, The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis, about 1891, oil on canvas.

Study Looks Closer At Promising New HIV Antibody

Ansin Building at 1340 Boylston

    Study Looks Closer At Promising New HIV Antibody
    An important new study examines the safety and efficacy of VRC01, a broadly neutralizing anti-HIV antibody, when administered as a long-term HIV prevention method. While earlier VRC01 research has shown the antibody to be safe for human use in short-term administration, the effects of multiple dosages - both via IV or injection - over a longer period of time had not been previously assessed.

This illustration of a medicinal plant can be seen in a manuscript in the Tapestry Room. While Isabella did travel to the Middle East, and it’s possible that this is why the work appealed to her, the manuscript was purchased from a New York dealer with the help of Isabella’s friends Bernard Berenson and Denman Waldo Ross. Image: Abdallah ibn al-Fadl, Verbena Recta and Verbena Supina, 1224, ink and watercolor on paper.

In Isabella’s day, the Raphael Room had stunning hangings on either side of the fireplace, with detailed appliques, rich velvet background, and an estimated 40,000 sequins. Today our textile conservators are recreating these hangings with hand-stitched pieces that will be quilted together to create the final work!

While the rooms on the first floor of the Museum have a more personal feel, Isabella created intimate installations in the upper galleries of her museum as well. The Dutch Room is known for its collection of Dutch Master paintings, but close looking reveals easily missed details such as the objects on this desk. The small pig figurine was a Christmas gift to Isabella from Denman Waldo Ross.
