Secrets of Tiffany Glassmaking
Dates:4.9.2012-4.9.2020

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) began his work in glass with the same tools and ingredients that had been used by artisans for thousands of years before him. Tiffany took the science of glassmaking, however, and elevated it to an art form of new brilliance and beauty. Under his watch, teams of talented designers and craftspeople translated Tiffany’s all-encompassing vision into some of the most memorable glass creations of our time. Tiffany’s studio system was not a simple enterprise; he needed specialized employees—a hierarchy of artists and artisans—to accomplish his goals. This exhibition, updated and reinstalled on September 4, 2012, addresses the processes that Tiffany’s many companies used to produce everything from glass mosaics and molded buttons to leaded-glass lamps and windows.

Revival and Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment
Dates:21.10.2014-21.10.2015

The Arts window by J. & R. Lamb Studios is the centerpiece of this major new exhibition that illustrates the rich diversity of styles that made up the aesthetic environment of the late 19th century in both Europe and America. Lamb Studios, a prominent American glasshouse of the era, exhibited the 1894 neoclassical window widely. In preparation for its debut at the Morse, the window, more than eight feet in diameter, underwent extensive conservation. The installation features 20 additional leaded-glass windows and selections of art glass, pottery, and furniture, a number of which also have never been exhibited. Other windows on view—some avant-garde, others reviving the past—include examples by Tiffany Studios, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, Edward Burne-Jones, Donald MacDonald, and Heaton, Butler & Bayne.

The Bride Elect—Gifts from the 1905 Wedding of Elizabeth Owens Morse
Dates:10.2.2015-10.2.2016

In 1905 Elizabeth Owens Morse, the daughter of Charles Hosmer Morse and Martha Owens Morse, married Richard Genius. The gift registry of this socially prominent Chicago bride—entitled “The Bride Elect”—survives in the Morse Museum’s archive, showing more than 250 gifts. Together these items provide a snapshot of the era, a glimpse into 1905 gift-giving traditions, and some insight into popular retail decisions made by wealthy consumers in the Chicago area. In this new exhibition, the Morse presents a representative group of the lovely gifts that survive from the Morse-Genius wedding, including Tiffany art glass, Rookwood pottery, and Gorham silver.

Selections from the Harry C. Sigman Collection of European and American Decorative Art
Dates:10.2.2015-10.2.2016

In this exhibit, the Museum debuts a selection from Harry C. Sigman’s 2014 gift of 86 objects to the Morse. Sigman, a Los Angeles attorney, began collecting European and American decorative art in 1969, and his gift dovetails with the late 19th- and early 20th-century styles represented in the Morse collection. The donation includes art glass, pottery, metalwork, and furniture. Though comprised mainly of Jeannette and Hugh McKean’s massive gift, the Morse collection has always been supported by generous individuals such as Harry Sigman whose contributions have helped it to grow in important ways. The finely crafted objects on view can be appreciated both individually and in the context of the Museum’s entire collection.

The Louis Comfort Tiffany Chronology
Dates:14.5.2015-14.5.2016

The Louis Comfort Tiffany Chronology, the Morse Museum’s authoritative timeline of Tiffany’s life, is now available on our website. It is currently as thorough a chronological listing of the basic facts of Tiffany’s personal and professional development as we know exists and will be updated as research reveals new information. Search by year, by a category of his life, or by keywords. Search “Favrile glass,” for example, to find what has been reported and recorded on Tiffany’s work in the medium for which he is best known. Entries in the chronology—which span from the birth of his grandfather in 1777 through the present day—are compiled from various sources including books, articles, contemporaneous accounts and records, as well as our own archival material.

Wien
Wally Neuzil - Her Life with Egon Schiele
Dates:27.2.2015-1.6.2015

The painting “Wally”, housed by the Vienna Leopold Museum, is among the most well-known works by Egon Schiele. The upcoming exhibition at the Leopold Museum seeks to uncover the person behind the portrait, Walburga “Wally” Neuzil (1894-1917), approaching her through artworks, autographs, photographs and documents. Featured in the presentation will be eminent paintings by Schiele, such as “Death and the Maiden”, an important loan from the Belvedere, as well as drawings and watercolors by Schiele for which Wally acted as a model. The exhibition comprises works from the Leopold Museum, the Leopold Private Collection as well as loans from Austrian and international collections.

The exhibition examines the stages of Wally’s life, her professions, from model to nurse, and tells the tale of a woman’s fate in fin-de-siècle Vienna, between self-sacrifice and self-fulfillment, between a life without taboos and profound humanity.

Terrassa
Art Nouveau damast
Dates:17.1.2015-1.11.2015

Stylised floral motifs and graceful birds adorned much table linen in the first quarter of the 20th century. During this period, Dutch linen weaveries invited artists to design damask patterns in this style, known as Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. Damask is often woven in a single colour, white. The subtle, delicate patterns are only revealed when the fabric is viewed from the correct angle. Chris Lebeau gained recognition at that time for his more than 60 eye-catching damask designs. The TextielMuseum made a selection from a series of beautiful damasks, woven in Art Nouveau style in the early 20th century, and presents them from 17 January in the exhibition Art Nouveau damask.
