The exhibition features about 40 objects from the Morse Museum’s comprehensive Tiffany collection and is supported through a narrative of graphic panels that present biographical information and archival photographs. The show is organized into five major phases of Tiffany’s life.

These include his early years as a painter; the decade in which he established himself as a decorator to New York’s upper class; his evolution as a master designer of both interiors and objects in the last decade of the 19th century; and the first years of the 20th century in which Tiffany’s business expanded, and he achieved status as an international star in the decorative arts.

Finally, the exhibition addresses his years in retirement amidst the changing tastes of the time.
