El Jaleo at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston
Sargent's dynamic "El Jaleo" is perfectly lit and sited within the astounding Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.  
"The Museum's three floors of galleries open onto a central courtyard [image left] filled with flowering plants. The appeal of the Museum lies not simply in its rich collections but in its total impression. The spirit of architecture, the personal character of the arrangement of the art and the colour and fragrance of the courtyard all create an atmosphere that delights the senses and sparks the imagination."
