Exhibition: Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection

A celebration of beauty, “Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection” features more than 60 objects, spanning over 30 years of Tiffany’s prolific career. One of America’s most renowned artists, Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in nearly all the media available to artists and designers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries—glass, ceramic, metalwork, jewelry and painting. Tiffany’s technical brilliance in a wide variety of media enabled him to convey his awe of the natural world through a range of objects, from common household items to one-of-a-kind masterpieces. He earned international acclaim for his artistic output, receiving prestigious awards in exhibitions across Europe and the United States. His work was enthusiastically collected by art museums and private collectors throughout his career, and continues to be highly sought after today.This exhibition, focusing on Tiffany’s magnificent stained-glass windows, floral vases, lamps and accessories, revels in the artistry and craftsmanship of the Tiffany works from Chicago’s distinguished Richard H. Driehaus Collection, highlighting masterworks never before presented in a comprehensive exhibition. “Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection” is organized by the Richard H. Driehaus Museum and is toured by International Arts and Artists, Washington, D.C.
