In the 1980s and 90s, the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston and the Earl of Baths residence in England both lost some of their most prestigious works to thefts and accidents. In this volume, which combines her series on both museums, Sophie Calle embarks on a quest to resurrect the memory of these pieces.
