- Garden of Poppies, about 1891
This pastel drawing depicts a landscape of a field of poppies. In the foreground is a dense growth of light-colored poppies, primarily in yellows, pinks, and reds. The flowers are delicately drawn on thin green stems, and stand amidst high grasses. In the background are bushes and shrubs in shades of green ranging from lime to dark. Patches of blue sky emerge at the top of the canvas.
Isabella Stewart Gardner kept meticulous records of many of her acquisitions. In keeping with this legacy, object information is continually being reviewed, updated, and enriched in order to give greater access to the collection.
