Radiance Rediscovered: Stained Glass by Tiffany and LaFarge
June 30, 2018 - April 21, 2019
This exhibition will feature 2 sets of exquisite memorial windows made by the 19th century's most recognized innovators of American stained glass: John La Farge (1835-1910) and Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933). Originally made for Boston's Mount Vernon Congregational Church in 1898 and 1899, the windows were transferred to the Museum in 1975, where they had been relegated to storage for more than 40 years. This exhibition will feature the carefully conserved windows alongside La Farge's experimental cloisonné glasswork in order to highlight the artists' design methods and aesthetic influences.
