Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library announces it will host "Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light," a dazzling exhibition of some of the most iconic and celebrated works by artist Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848 – 1933), from September 5, 2015, through January 3, 2016. The collection was organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York City. It is presented by M&T Bank and DuPont.

Tiffany Glass features celebrated windows such as Grape Vine and Lemon Tree with Trellis and Well by the Fence, illustrating Tiffany’s mastery of “painting” with glass. Iconic lamp designs such as the Dragonfly and florals such as Peony, Laburnum, and Clematis are also included. In all, the exhibition will showcase 99 objects including five large windows, 19 lamps of various shapes and sizes, and 75 pieces of opalescent flat glass from the Tiffany Studios workshop.

“The pieces were chosen for their masterful rendering of nature in flowers or landscape scenes and for the subtle use of light and shading in decorative geometric patterns,” said Lindsy Perrott, Curator of the Neustadt Collection.

The Tiffany Glass exhibition will be supplemented by a second, smaller exhibit, "Tiffany: The Color of Luxury," which will present a playful, engaging look at the Tiffany name in American culture.
