Louis Comfort “Tiffany at Lafayette”

Tiffany at Lafayette

At the turn of the last century, two superb art glass windows were commissioned for Lafayette College from Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company in New York City—Alcuin and Charlemagne (1898) for Pardee Hall and The Death of Sir Philip Sidney (1899) for Van Wickle Memorial Library (now Van Wickle Hall). For the last decaOrganized by the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York, the exhibition is comprised of windows, lamps, and a large selection of loose glass pieces that illustrate Tiffany’s masterful use of opalescent glass to achieve painterly results. These objects are some of the company’s most iconic and celebrated, chosen because they exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection, and intricacy of design characteristic of Tiffany’s leaded-glass art.

Exhibition made possible by the generous support of Ellen Kravet Burke, Lafayette Class of 1976, and Ray Burke, Lafayette Class of 1975, in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Kravet, Floral Park, New Yorkde, ever since these two windows were successfully restored and installed in Skillman Library, the Lafayette College Art Galleries and Skillman Library’s Special Collections have wanted to host a proper celebration of the magnificent Tiffany legacy at Lafayette College. This spring, with the assistance of some remarkably generous Lafayette alumni, we are able to offer a trio of exhibitions and an array of programs to celebrate this legacy.
