The Museum of Biblical Art in New York City is putting up an impressive exhibition featuring Louis C. Tiffany. With a devotion centered theme, the exhibit is the first to center on the illustrious artist's work. The exhibition is set to run until January 20th.
Louis Comfort Tiffany was the quintessential tastemaker of the post-Civil War Gilded Age. He's famous for his iridescent leaded-glass windows and lamps. But most of his commissions were for America's houses of worship at a time of unprecedented church-building.
"Louis C. Tiffany and the Art of Devotion" is a new exhibit at The Museum of Biblical Art in New York City. It's the first major show to focus exclusively on Tiffany's religious output of altars, baptismal fonts, mosaics, windows and other liturgical ornamentation. It features 84 objects. Ten are stained-glass windows.
