Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum : Theft.
View a virtual tour of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum that evokes bittersweet feelings: it was 25 years ago on March 18 that 13 priceless works of art were brazenly stolen from Boston house museum. This site contextualizes the works through photographs of the works as they had appeared in the house, bills of sale, telegrams and letters. The connoisseur, Bernard Berenson, Mrs. Gardner’s friend who advised and helped her build her collection for many years is also featured.

This special trip to Boston provided a wonderful opportunity for students from Prof. Wolf’s seminar, Goya: His Art, Times, and Legacy, to enjoy a “once in a generation” chance to view the sole venue for the retrospective, Goya: Order and Disorder, which covers the artist’s oeuvre in all media, featuring many works on loan from the Prado and elsewhere that are rarely allowed to travel. Read more about Goya: Order and Disorder here.
At the same time students in Prof. Heuer’s classes visited the MFA’s world-class collection of ancient art.

The museum, housed in the exquisite 17th-century Hôtel Salé (built for the salt tax gatherer Pierre Aubert) in the Marais district, is transformed.
There is much more exhibition space, so about 400 of the museum’s 5,000 works will be on show at any one time. The display is arranged bottom to top: the basement houses six galleries showing studio work. The ground floor is devoted to early work, and the first and second floors to that of the 1920s, ’30s and the war period. The top floor is newly opened to the public, and displays some 50 paintings Picasso owned by other artists – from a Chardin still life to a full-size Renoir study for a finished painting now in Philadelphia’s Barnes Collection.

In 2013, Sandro decided to do a project honoring the men and women whose photographs helped shape his career. After selecting thirty-five images to emulate, Sandro contacted Malkovich, who instantly agreed to participate. When speaking about Malkovich, Sandro states: “John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.”
