To commemorate Louis Comfort Tiffany’s birth on this date in 1848, take a virtual tour of Haworth House, the largest collection of Tiffany in Europe. Below, a Tiffany stained glass mural at Yale, entitled Education.
Yale, btw, was worried about the window during student protests in the spring of 1970, so the art department was charged with crating and storing it until things settled down. When they went to retrieve it later, it wasn’t there. More months passed and a student happened to notice it behind a curtain in its original position. Not only had the Tiffany window not been protected, the windows sent to storage in its place had disappeared – either lost or stolen. All the details here.
