Virtual tour of the Gardner Masterpieces

Virtual tour of the Gardner Masterpieces

It's been exactly 25 years since the largest art theft in the American history. Not less than thirteen pieces, including paintings by the famous Rembrandt and Vermeer, were stolen from the Gardner Museum in Boston, 1990.

In order to mark the somber date, this year the museum has created a virtual tour of the masterpieces in order to give the passionate public a chance to get the feeling of admiration at least in this way. Besides giving art lovers an opportunity to see how the gallery used to look at its best, the online tour presents some sparkles of hope, that someone could recognize any missing item. Having their value estimated at approximately $300-$500 million dollars, few progress has been made in recovering the works. According to the Boston police, two men managed to get access to the museum by midnight and escape with the masterpieces. Unfortunately they have never been caught.

Within the content of the site, there is clear information about how Isabella Stewart Gardner, who founded the museum in 1903, acquired the items. We can only hope that some of the missing work will be restored in time. Until then, let's take advantage of the new online tour.
