Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum  -  Boston
 
Kunstsamleren og kunstmæcenen Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) grundlagde museet i 1903 i sit nyopførte hjem i Boston, der var bygget i stil med Venedigs renæssancepaladser, og især inspireret af Palazzo Barbaro.
I 1990 blev 13 værker stjålet fra samlingen og blandt dem Vermeers "Koncerten", ca. 1664. Tyveriet er uopklaret. I samlingen ses tomme rammer hvor de stjålne værker var ophængt.
The art collector and patron of arts Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) founded the museum in 1903 in her newly completed home in Boston which was built to resemble the Renaissance palaces of Venice in particular Palazzo Barbaro.

In 1990 thirteen works were stolen from the collection and among them Vermeer's "The Concert", c. 1664. The crime remains unsolved. In the collection empty frames are seen as placeholders for the missing works.

Det demokratiske æsel og den republikanske elefant.
I 1828 etablerede Andrew Jackson Det moderne Demokratiske Parti og stillede op til præsidentvalget med det populistiske slogan "Lad folket styre", hans modstandere anså ham for at være en "jackass" [at være dum som et æsel]. Jackson vendte betegnelsen til sin fordel [at være stædig som et æsel] ved at anvende et æsel på sine valgplakater. I årenes løb blev æslet accepteret som symbol for Det Demokratiske Parti.
Symbolet for Det Republikanske Parti blev skabt i 1874 i karikaturtegneren Thomas Nashs [Nasts] fantasi og trykt i Harper's Weekly. Kort efter begyndte andre karikaturtegnere at bruge elefanten som symbol for Republikanerne, der endte med at vælge elefanten som deres officielle symbol.
 
The Democratic Donkey and The Republican Elephant.
When, in 1828, Andrew Jackson established the Democratic party and ran for president using the populist slogan, "Let the people rule", his opponents thought him silly and labeled him a "jackass". Jackson, however, picked up on their name calling and turned it to his advantage by using the donkey on his campaign posters. Over the years this donkey has become the accepted symbol of the Democratic party
.
The symbol of the Republican party in 1874 was born in the imagination of cartoonist, Thomas Nash [Nast], in Harper's Weekly. Soon other cartoonists used the elephant to symbolize Republicans, and eventually, Republicans adopted the elephant as their official symbol.
Den første karikaturtegning der skildrede Demokraterne som æsler, 1837. "Den moderne Balaam og hans æsel" efter Rembrandts maleri "Balaam og hans æsel".
