2017 Faculty Speaker Event
The "Barbarous Barbaro":
Art, Travel, and Exoticism in Isabella Stewart Gardner's Museum
Featuring Paul Fisher, Associate Professor of
American Studies at Wellesley College
Isabella Stewart Gardner has been described as “Boston's pre-cinema star,” but her career achievements are in fact more substantial and more feminist than many people know. Her transgressive outlook and adventurous travels strongly influenced her greatest achievement, the building of the Gardner Museum and the installation of her art collection there. At Fenway Court, Isabella Stewart Gardner translated her liberating world travels into one of the world's most unusual and compelling museums.
