Bric-à-brac

What is included in Isabella Stewart Gardner's vast and magnificent collection?

More than 7500 paintings, sculptures, furniture, textiles, silver, ceramics, 1500 rare books, and 7000 archival objects from all over the world, modestly described in Mrs. Gardner's will as "pictures, sanctuary, works of art, bric-à-brac, furniture, books and papers." 

The phrase bric-à-brac dates back to the Victorian era, its meaning synonymous with a selection of decorative objects. We hope you enjoy browsing through our assortment of trinkets and baubles inspired by the marvelous bric-à-brac of Mrs. Gardner's Museum.
