Once Isabella purchased The Annunciation, the next challenge was to get it out of Italy at a time when Italy was not too keen on Italian paintings being bought by foreign collectors. Isabella's art dealers the Berensons settled on a daring plan involving a trunk with a false bottom, an art dealer disguised as a travelling salesman, and some dolls!

Composer-violinist Charles Martin Loeffler was one of Isabella Stewart Gardner’s closest friends. When Isabella completed her museum, Loeffler used its Music Room to debut “Pagan Poem,” one of his most important compositions. Loeffler and his friend Mabel Hunt Slater gave this cast of Loeffler’s hand to Gardner as Christmas present in 1914. Object: P.P. Caproni and Brother (active 1892 - 1927), Charles Martin Loeffler’s Hand, 1914, plaster.

This painting stands out in the Gardner Museum, a French Rococo work hidden in plain sight among Italian Renaissance paintings. What we wonder about is the absence of the titular character. Venus is missing from ‘The Chariot of Venus’! Curators believe this work may be part of a larger painting that was later cut into sections.

The Blue Room brims with objects that reflect Isabella Stewart Gardner’s personal relationships. Here you see Zorn’s The Omnibus. The case below contains a photograph of the social reformer Julia Ward Howe, a friend of Isabella’s. Because Howe was an active proponent of women’s independent travel, Gardner’s positioning of this painting, depicting unchaperoned women commuting in Paris, would appear to be intentional.

This puzzling painting was one of the first works by an old master that Isabella Gardner purchased. She bought it in 1892 as a painting by Lucas Cranach, but since then scholars have disputed that attribution. Some say the figures may have been painted by Cranach; others feel they are too sweetly portrayed and must be by another artist. Is this a painting begun by Cranach and then finished or reworked by a student or assistant? Or is it by a later imitator?
