One of the largest and most brazen art thefts in the country took place at this Boston Museum. The pieces, which were stolen in 1990, have never been recovered.
About Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum:
Art enthusiasts love to visit the many art-related Attractions in Boston. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum boasts a wonderful collection of art from all over the world. The Boston Museum opened in 1903, and it has been delighting visitors ever since.
Gardner was an avid art collector, and she wanted the Boston Museum bearing her name to be available to all people. When she died, her will stipulated that her then impressive collection from Asia, Europe and America remain on display in a public setting “forever.”
Today, visitors who patronize this Boston Museum will find art from both Gardner’s personal collection and pieces that have been added to the collection since her death. Thousands of items including paintings, sculptures, music and more are part of the collections at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
