Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

The 1990 theft of 13 works at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston has never been solved. Worth an estimated $500 million, the pieces included the only seascape Rembrandt ever painted and a painting by Johannes Vermeer, who left behind just 35 known works. 
約1992年,參觀波士頓的Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum,是難忘的經驗。



Isabella Stewart Gardner first welcomed visitors to her museum on New Year's Day, 1903. On that evening guests listened to the music of Bach, Mozart, and Schumann, gazed in wonder at the courtyard full of flowers, and viewed one of the nation's finest collections of art. Today, visitors experience much the same thing. The Gardner Museum has remained essentially unchanged since its founder's death in 1924. Unchanged but certainly not stagnant. Three floors of galleries surround a garden courtyard blooming with life in all seasons.


The galleries are filled with paintings, sculpture, tapestries, furniture, and decorative arts from cultures spanning thirty centuries.

I love gardening. It keeps me closer to mother nature. The Gardner museum sounds interesting. I hope to visit the place soon. I even included Decorative Arts in my garden to make it look more artistic.
