At Winterthur - As a painter, Louis C. Tiffany was captivated by the interplay of light and color, and this fascination found its most spectacular expression in his glass “paintings.” Tiffany could actually capture light in color and manipulate it to achieve impressionistic effects.

The exhibit is comprised of five windows, twenty lamps, and seventy-five pieces of opalescent flat glass, in addition to educational models illustrating how leaded-glass shades are selected and fabricated, along with three examples of Tiffany lamp forgeries to explore issues of authenticity and connoisseurship. The objects on display are some of the most iconic and celebrated of Tiffany’s works.
