Web Description: 
Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933) was the son of the well-known jeweler Charles L. Tiffany, founder of Tiffany & Company in New York City. The leading proponent of the Art Nouveau style in the United States, Tiffany was introduced to architectural and decorative glass through his interior design work. He is best known for his impressive stained glass windows, which illustrate religious as well as secular subjects, such as landscapes. From 1885 to 1928, Tiffany produced his famous stained glass lamps and art glass vases at his studios in Corona, New York.

Tiffany's Glass Mosaics
Venue(s)
Corning Museum of Glass 2017-05-20 through 2018-01-08
When you hear the words “Tiffany” and “glass,” you may immediately think of leaded glass windows or luminous lamps, but artist Louis C. Tiffany expressed his passion for color and glass most innovatively in the technique of mosaic. From monumental architectural installations to inkwells for desktops, Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics will be the first museum exhibition focused exclusively on this aspect of Tiffany’s extraordinary artistic career. The exhibition will feature a selection of objects from museums, libraries, and private collections, including fireplace surrounds, decorative panels, desk accessories, design drawings, sample panels, lamps, trade literature, and a special look at Tiffany’s innovative materials including an array of sheet glass, glass “jewels,” and glass fragments drawn from the archive of The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. Treasured by local communities, many of Tiffany’s architectural glass mosaics survive today, tucked away in churches, libraries, universities and other public buildings. This exhibition at The Corning Museum of Glass will use new digital displays to bring these artworks to audiences in Corning. By examining the inventive materials and process—from design inspiration to fabrication—we hope that visitors will appreciate the creativity of Tiffany’s talented artists and artisans as never before. This exhibition is jointly organized by The Corning Museum of Glass and The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass.
