Louis Comfort Tiffany
The New Britain Museum of American Art is presenting a new exhibition showing art works of Louis Comfort Tiffany. The exhibition focuses on Tiffany's paintings, with more than one hundred paintings from the Nassau County Museum on display. Many of the paintings illustrate scenes he witnessed in Egypt, Turkey and other exotic locales in the middle east.
In addition, there are forty works in glass, furniture, jewelry and other objects from Tiffany's studio, loaned by the Mark Twain House. Tiffany's experiences in the east influenced his designs. The exhibition runs through September 29.
On the way out of the museum I saw a mention that photography is not permitted in this exhibition, so I decided that a wide angle photo mainly showing part of the galleries would be better than a closer photo of specific works.
