From monumental architectural installations to inkwells for desktops, this will be the first museum exhibition focused exclusively on this aspect of Tiffany’s extraordinary artistic career. The exhibition features nearly 50 works dating from the 1890s to the 1920s, from intimately-scaled, fancy goods designed for use in the home to large-scale, mosaic panels composed of thousands of individual pieces of glass. In addition, more than 1,000 pieces of original Tiffany glass are included on loan from The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, New York. Visitors also get to explore the process behind the creation of Tiffany’s mosaics—from the beginning, when detailed watercolor studies were presented to clients, to the creation of mosaic sample panels used to guide glass selection for special commissions. Find out more about the ‘Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics’ exhibition from the Corning Museum of Glass’ website.
