Visitors to Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida will get a chance to admire one of the last, major artworks of American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, known for his leaded glass works, as the museum will put out the artist’s works on permanent display next month.
Morse Museum will open its new gallery, expanding in an area of 6,000-square-foot, to the public on Feb. 19, showcasing 250 surviving art and architectural objects from Tiffany’s renowned Long Island estate, Laurelton Hall that was destroyed in a fire in 1957, the museum announced in a statement.
Laurelton Hall was built between 1902 and 1905 and is considered Tiffany’s greatest work of art. It featured everything from interiors, ceilings, terrace to gardens and fountains with works of glass. The famous terrace from the Tiffany estate, the Daffodil Terrace, is one of the highlights of the estate that will also be showcased in the new gallery at Morse Museum.
The museum also houses jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded glass windows and lamps from Tiffany collection including the Tiffany Chapel, an interior designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, according to the official site of the museum.
