2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Lyman Allyn Art Museum
Presenter: Arlie Sulka │ Owner of the world renowned gallery, Lillian Nassau LLC, in NYC
Although Tiffany windows and lamps have been the gold standard for stained glass making from their outset, it is the glass that found its way into the world’s museums beginning in the 1890’s and continuing until the 1930’s when Tiffany Studios closed its doors forever. That trend continues today as museums add Tiffany glass to their permanent holdings. Ms. Sulka will give a brief chronology of Louis Tiffany’s oeuvre, with a concentration on collections of Tiffany glass in museums throughout the world.
