PROGRAMS AND EVENTS
Secrets of Tiffany Glassmaking
Through photographs, models, tools, and art objects, this teaching exhibit shows the range of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s glass production, from mosaics and molded-glass jewels to leaded-glass windows and lamps, providing insights into the techniques employed by his artisans.
Paintings from the Morse Collection
Exhibits in the Museum’s galleries are changed periodically to enable the public to see more of the permanent collection.The paintings in this gallery include late nineteenth-century portraits, genre scenes, landscapes, mothers with children, allegory, and even a portrayal of a family outing. The paintings represent a variety of styles but never stray from recognizable images and the simple themes of daily life.
Art Jewelry, Favrile Metalwork & Precious Glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany
Reinstalled in March 2008, this permanent gallery features about three dozen objects, including 11 pieces of jewelry that Tiffany designed for the new art jewelry division he established at Tiffany & Co. after his father died in 1905.
Selected Works of Louis Comfort Tiffany from the Morse Collection
The first three galleries at the Morse have been installed with more than a hundred objects representing the remarkable diversity of work by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The installation includes 15 leaded-glass windows, as well as more than a hundred examples of Tiffany art glass, metalwork, lamps, and pottery.
The celebrated chapel interior that Louis Comfort Tiffany created for exhibition at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago opened as an exhibition at the Morse in April 1999, becoming available to the public for the first time in more than 100 years. The mosaic and glass masterpiece, a testament to his design genius, established Tiffany’s reputation internationally.
