Muskegon Museum of Art
American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany is famed for his glass, decorative arts and household goods, jewelry, and design work. Especially prized are his iconic stained glass lamps. Tiffany Lamps: The Richard H. Driehaus Collection brings to our audiences a stunning display of lamps from the height of the Tiffany Studio’s creative output and features some of the firm’s most recognized designs. The show is comprised of 15 lamps and a stained glass window, highlighting the beauty and elegance of Tiffany design. The exhibition also celebrates the contributions of Clara Driscoll, the woman who created many of the studio’s famous patterns and oversaw the “Tiffany Girls,” a team of women who selected, cut, and assembled the stained glass shades. Patterns on display include Dragonfly, Peony, Snowball, and Wisteria.
