Gardner was a true Renaissance Woman - somewhat to the chagrin of her staid 19th-century contemporaries. Gardner used her money on an art shopping spree across Europe, snapping up Titians, Vermeers and Giottos. Her will turned her mansion into a museum - and mandated that it be left exactly as it was when she died, right down to the cut-out figures she had installed to keep residents of the mansion company. Located within easy walking distance of the MFA.
