Eternal Light: The Sacred Stained-Glass Windows of Louis Comfort Tiffany

Venue

Eternal Light looks without sentiment at the ecclesiastical windows of the Tiffany firm as rich reminders that America is ever-changing. Eternal Light is not only about beautiful objects exceptionally crafted; it is also about the ideas and stories behind the windows: progressive technologies, designers, and patrons. At the heart of the exhibition are eleven outstanding, religiously themed windows made between 1880 and 1920.
