The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston

So that was her home…

“Fenway Court.”

The legendary Isabella Stewart Gardner of Boston…

It was said that when Mrs. Potter Palmer showed her dinner service of solid gold to Mrs. Gardner, the latter commented dryly:  “Charming…But what do you do when you entertain???” 

John Singer Sargent stayed and painted there…

“El Jaleo”…

I was so glad that I saw it before the Big Theft of 1990 when so many of her priceless art treasures had been stolen…!!!
