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 and inventive artists, Tiffany (1848–1933) worked in glass, ceramic, metalwork, jewelry, and painting. His 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, stained glass in particular, receiving prestigious awards in exhibitions across Europe and the United States. His work was enthusiastically collected by art museums and private collectors throughout his lifetime and continues to be highly sought after today. This exhibition revels in Tiffany’s artistry and craftsmanship through masterworks from Chicago’s distinguished Richard H. Driehaus Collection, the objects never having been 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 & Artists, Washington, DC.
