About the Event
In the late 19th century, Isabella and her husband Jack started travelling regularly to Europe and found a particular liking to Venice. Isabella’s Venetian circle was composed by famous artists, historians, writers, and other art patrons.
Isabella, quickly smitten by the Serenissima, started developing an appreciation for the Italian Old Masters. She started collecting art in a serious and ambitious manner creating one of the most astonishing private collections of Italian art and European Art visible in the United States. She gathered paintings by Raphael, Titian, Botticelli, Vermeer, and Rembrandt to name a few.
In 1990, some of the most precious artworks in the collection were stolen in the most important art heist that ever happened. The mystery was never resolved, and the museum’s display shows the hope they will return one day.
