Tiffany glass is subject of an exhibition now on view at the Montreal Museum of Art. Tiffany Glass: A Passion for Color details the stems from the 1866 commission of windows for the American Presbyterian Church handled by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Over a period of years 17 windows were installed. Then, they were more or less hidden from view in Montreal.
Interest amongst museum staff lead to the exhibition, which is mounted in partnership with the Musee de Luxemburg in Paris and the Virginia Academy of Fine Arts. Pulling together an impressive selection of Tiffany objects from disparate collections, the exhibition effectively gives a strong overview of Tiffany’s career. Perhaps not groundbreaking, but certainly eye catching.
