The noted New Yorker cartoonist Alan Dunn (1900–74) was a “fellow” of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, as was Hugh F. McKean (1908–95), director of the Morse until his death. Dunn visited Laurelton Hall on nine occasions. A fine watercolorist, Dunn was at the time a member of the American and New York Water Color Societies, and some of his work from the estate was exhibited. The artist characterized them as “an accurate panorama of Laurelton in full flower.” Dunn’s delightful watercolors—part of a gift to the Museum from Dunn in 1973—evoke both the spirit of Tiffany’s foundation and the beauty of the estate.
