Permanent event
Closed Today (Tuesday)

Tiffany: The Glass, an installation of two windows, eleven lamp shades, and more than two hundred examples of sheet glass, explores some of the remarkable patterns, textures, and colors of opalescent glass used by the Tiffany Studios. This exhibition is the first of its kind and focuses on the beauty and diversity of the material used in the creation of spectacular leaded-glass windows, lamps, and mosaics produced under Louis Comfort Tiffany’s artistic direction.

This display highlights some of the most commonly used types of sheet glass produced at the Tiffany Furnaces in Corona, Queens, as well as glass purchased from commercial glass manufactures. The lamps and windows included in the exhibition demonstrate the ways in which these distinctive materials were used to replicate the details of the natural world.
