Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light
February 2 – May 5, 2018
Louis C. Tiffany’s glass is celebrated for its saturated color and dazzling luminosity. Characterized by an internal glow and milky translucency, Tiffany’s opalescent glass captures light and amplifies color. Under Tiffany’s personal supervision, this glass, in an extraordinary range of colors and hues, was used to create some of the most striking and iconic decorative objects of the twentieth century.
The windows and lamps in this exhibition were chosen for their masterful glass selection and subtle use of light and shading. They exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection, and intricacy of design characteristic of Tiffany’s leaded-glass objects.
This exhibition is organized by Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, Queens, New York.
