John Singer Sargent and Isabella Stewart Gardner shared a love of world music, and he gave her a set of flamenco records as a token of their mutual interest. Her handwritten rating of the recording—“good”—is visible on the label.
The label that appears on the front of this coaster is a facsimile of the original record, which was on display in the Museum's Vatichino as part of the temporary exhibition, Off the Wall: Gardner and Her Masterpieces.
Please note that because the surface of the journal is created using vintage vinyl records, each is unique and will have slight imperfections as the records have been used.
