Isabella Stewart Gardner began her remarkable and wide ranging collection of art from around the world in her early 50’s. She loved to travel and she loved art. In The Blue Room lined with blue silk and paintings hanging salon style , I focused on the luminescent Ralph Wormeley Curtis ‘Return from the Lido’. In The Yellow Room, Henri Matisse’s ‘Terrace, Saint-Tropez’ with dark foliage framing the central part of the terrace scene and heavy shadow slicing through the center of the scene was dazzling! It was in the famous Dutch Room where the Vermeers were stolen in 1990, the largest private property theft in history valued at $500 million. If you find a Vermeer, Rembrandt, Manet or Degas of unknown origin on Antiques Road Show or a local estate sale, remember there is a $10 million reward.
