Guest speaker Susan Olsen, the Director of Historical Services at Woodlawn, will share her recent research on the cemetery's extensive collection of monuments, as well as ongoing condition assessments for windows and mosaics. Tune in to hear about Woodlawn's special conservation project, funded in part by a Save America's Treasures grant, to restore an important Tiffany mosaic back to its former glory.

Tiffany lovers, rejoice! Our virtual programs return TONIGHT! Don't miss our special debut lecture exploring the intersection of Tiffany's Confederate memorial windows and the way stained glass was used, decades after the Civil War, to reshape the perception of this conflict. As America continues to reassess the symbolism and history of Confederate monuments, we are pleased to welcome Kayli Rideout, a Ph.D. candidate at Boston University, to share research from her dissertation, 'Love Makes Memory Eternal’: Tiffany’s Confederacy Memorial Windows.

In the years between 1889 and 1925, Tiffany Studios created 19 known windows in memory of the Confederacy. Placed in the context of their commission — social, cultural, and geographical — these windows reveal the relationship between stained glass and spectacle. This presentation will focus on Tiffany’s Maryland Soldiers and Sailors Window to consider how the stained glass medium allowed for period viewers to engage in cultural fantasy, specifically the fantasy of the Lost Cause. Commissioned in 1905 by the Maryland Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Maryland Soldiers and Sailors Window illustrates how these cultural fantasies relied on the Lost Cause myth and white supremacist racial ideology, and the ways in which stained glass windows became cultural actors in the Jim Crow South.

We hope you will join us for this timely and thought-provoking presentation.

The design of this Russian shade calls to mind the pointed arches and roundels of medieval stained-glass windows. The glass selection in these areas showcases the incredible color combinations possible in Tiffany’s glass — a testament to the talent of Tiffany’s chemists, who could combine more than 5 colors in a single sheet of glass!

This petite ‘Elaborate Peony’ shade is one of the earliest leaded-glass lampshade designs created in Tiffany’s studios — and only one of two examples know to survive! It derives its highly unusual shape from blown-glass shades already in production for Tiffany’s early fuel lamps.

Another striking example of the power of glass selection 💥

These Grape Library Lamps couldn’t be more different thanks to their unique glass palettes 🎨

With its vibrant greens and deep purples, the lamp on the right is certainly eye-catching. But don’t sleep on the lamp on the left! It may be more subdued with its monochromatic color scheme, but look closely and you’ll see a tantalizing background of “twig” glass, giving it some unexpected dynamism.

Last night’s thunderstorm brought to mind the swelling surf of drapery glass in this spectacular Tiffany window in Middletown, RI.

Designed by Maitland Armstrong (1836-1918) for the Tiffany Glass Company, this memorial window dates to ca. 1886, before Tiffany opened his own glass furnaces in Corona, Queens. Part of a suite of windows designed for St. Columba’s Chapel, it is also among Armstrong’s earliest windows.

We hope to visit this window again on our upcoming trip to Newport, RI!

Saw some beautiful Tiffany windows at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. It was the former Ponde De León Hotel. Didn't get to the tour of the dining room withTiffany windows
Congratulations, Lindsay! You are doing great work.
