Session Information

Tiffany Glass from the Neustadt Collection

Take a behind-the-scenes look at works by Louis C. Tiffany and his studios in the preeminent Neustadt Collection in Queens, New York. Founded by early Tiffany collector Dr. Egon Neustadt, this extraordinary assemblage encompasses Tiffany’s celebrated lamps, windows, metalwork, and rare archival materials. The collection also boasts a one-of-a-kind Tiffany glass archive that includes more than a quarter of a million pieces of original Tiffany flat glass and glass “jewels.” Lindsy Parrott, executive director and curator of the Neustadt Collection, shares highlights of the holdings and discusses new avenues of Tiffany scholarship, such as the personal histories and professional contributions of the designers and artisans essential to his success. She also previews her traveling exhibition Tiffany or Tiphony? The Art of Connoisseurship, which considers lamp forgeries alongside authentic examples to help visitors develop and hone connoisseurship skills.
