May 31st 2010 8:32PM I went to this exquisite exhibit yesterday at 10:00 AM - the first group to go through. While I had expected a more introspective view of Mr. Tiffany's work, it is an grand survery of the wide variety of his work and the extent to which Art Noveau played a prominent influence in his creations.
I must say that the lamps and church windows were for me, the best parts of the exhibit. The technique, idiosyncrasies, and character of his creations (the windows in particular) reflect the dedication and innovation Mr. Tiffany brought to his field, a true credit he is. For example, there is one window at the end in which part of the window literally appears as if it is underwater; yet another, the illumination of the flame in a lamp appears so vivid it is too easy to assume it is real.
For only $15, you truly cannot miss out on this cultural gateway to a time gone by where quality, dedication, and passion melded into a singular confluence that produced some of the most remarkable art work we will see in a given generation.
