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.

To put it simply, a relic is any object of importance. Back in the Renaissance, this reliquary by Fra Angelico was full of relics from deceased saints, like bits of hair and skin. A relic of the 21st century might be less morbid, like a pocket watch or family heirloom. Let us know what your relics are in the comments below with #WhatsYourRelic! Image: Fra Angelico, The Madonna della Stella (detail), 1424-1434, tempera with oil glazes and gold on panel.
