Eternal Light looks without sentiment at the ecclesiastical windows of the Tiffany firm as rich reminders that America is ever-changing. Louis Comfort Tiffany’s masterpieces tell stories of American entrepreneurship, of places of worship as community incubators, of our country’s evolving relationship to religion. Eternal Light is not only about beautiful objects exceptionally crafted; it is also about the ideas and stories behind the windows: progressive technologies, designers, and patrons. At the heart of the exhibition are eleven outstanding, religiously themed windows made between 1880 and 1920 that demonstrate the signature designs, working methods, techniques, and production styles of Tiffany and his workshops.
