What do you see? (2013)
On March 18, 1990, five drawings by Degas, one vase, a Napoleonic eagle, and six paintings by Rembrandt, Flinck, Manet and Vermeer were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. The frames of the paintings were left behind. After being restored, they were hung back in place, further emphasising the painting´s absence. I asked curators, guards, other staff members and visitors to tell me what they saw within these frames.
The Concert, circa 1660 - Jan Vermeer
A Lady and a Gentleman in Black, 1633 - Rembrandt van Rijn
Q What do you see within these frames?
