Description: Drawn from an important Long Island collection, this major exhibition showcases more than 100 original works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, offering an uncommon glimpse into the artist’s personal world. Tiffany’s light-filled Orientalism and his use of sensuous Art Nouveau lines contrasted sharply with the era’s prevailing dark Victorian décor and had a powerful influence on the evolving aesthetics of the wealthy and famous of the Gilded Age. The exhibition runs through March 2012.
