Behind the Glass: The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany

Hear from historian and author Paul Doros and the Museum’s curator of American glass Kelly Conway about the life and work of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Conway will introduce Tiffany’s work, highlighting the expansive range of artistic objects created during his career. Doros will speak about the topic of his recent book, The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany, which explores Tiffany Studios’ Favrile glass and provides an historical look at the life of Tiffany.

The lecture will wrap up with a presentation from curator of modern glass, Tina Oldknow, about two new additions of Tiffany’s work to the Museum’s Modern Gallery.

Stay after to view these objects in the gallery and enjoy a coffee-and-sweets reception with a book signing by Doros. The reception is free and open to everyone.
