Louis Comfort Tiffany's Quest of Beauty
May 31 - August 24, 2014
Since 2006, the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts has formed an impressive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Examples of his Favrile glass vases, mosaics, ceramics and jewelry, as well as a leaded-glass and bronze lamp, a painting, a drawing and a large enameled vase illustrate the range of Tiffany's design expertise. Many of the works are included in this exhibition; others are on view in the galleries on the lower level.
