Henry James had a real affection for her, and was inspired by the rich and powerful Mrs. Gardner and her magnificent pearls, as well as by the Palazzo Barbaro in Venice, for his novel The Wings of the Dove. Mrs. Gardner was to recreate a larger-than-life version of Palazzo Barbaro in Boston, which is now the Isabella Gardner Museum. These letters also add another dimension to what we know of Henry Jamess long relationship with Venice and the Palazzo Barbaro.
