THROUGH FEB. 26, 2018
A new exhibition will showcase 32 exquisite glass vases designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. “Tiffany Favrile Glass: Masterworks from the Collection of Stanley and Dolores Sirott” includes works ranging from experimental pieces made in the 1890s to the widely-admired peacock vases produced in the early years of the 20th century.
While Tiffany is famous for many types of glass work, the Sirott collection focuses exclusively on Tiffany’s Favrile vases. These lustrous vessels, known for their innovative forms and colors, are among the most extraordinary examples of Art Nouveau decorative art ever created in this country. On loan from a private collection of more than 300 pieces, many of the vases in the show are true rarities and afford fresh perspectives
on Tiffany’s work. Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, (626) 405-2100, huntington.org
