Isabella Quote Mug: "Picture Habit"

This mug—perfect for sipping some of our Courtyard-inspired loose leaf teas—prominently features a quote attributed to Isabella Stewart Gardner: "I suppose the picture-habit (which I seem to have) is as bad as the morphine or whisky one . . . " This quotation imparts the passion and enthusiasm Mrs. Gardner felt when building her Museum and acquiring the art in her collection. We hope that by visiting the Museum, you have acquired a "picture-habit" as well!
