The Charles Hosmer - Morse Museum of American Art


Louis Comfort Tiffany—Turn-of-the-Century Photographer

February 13, 2001 through June 11, 2001

This exhibition of 27 photographs from the Morse’s permanent collection is the first known exhibition of photographs by Louis C. Tiffany (1848–1933).

Tiffany was America’s design master at the turn of the century. Most people know his lamps, many know his revolutionary and internationally heralded leaded-glass windows, and some know of his mosaics and interior design. But few have any idea that he was also a photographer whose interest in the medium went beyond the help it could be on a practical level and extended to the regions of photographic art. His many subjects included people, plants, boats, and landscapes.
