Take a behind-the-scenes look at works by Louis C. Tiffany and his studios in the preeminent Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in Queens, New York. Founded in 1969 by early Tiffany collector 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, shares highlights of the holdings, recent acquisitions and provenance discoveries, 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 the forthcoming traveling exhibition she curated, Tiffany or Tiphony? The Art of Connoisseurship, which considers lamp forgeries alongside authentic examples to help visitors develop and hone their discerning eye.
