Isabella Stewart Gardner was a fascinating woman. From the get go she was an adventurous-do-her-own-thing kind of person. I loved reading about how she tried to run away to the circus or how she stole sleighs and would careen around Boston or how she managed to outbid large museums like the Louvre on famous paintings. When she became a widow, she slowly turned her house into the museum it is today. And this was in the 1800 hundreds.

The facts: what happened, the stolen artwork, and images of the paintings.
The news release that the thieves had been identified.
A brief look into the incredible life of Isabella Stewart Gardner.
