Chicago Art Scene

Hello! I’m feeling fortunate to have made it to Chicago to see my daughter and the Driehaus Museum’s exhibition of Eternal Light – The Ecclesiastical Stained Glass Windows of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

The museum itself was a work of art- an old home saved by the historical society. The woodwork and tile work were spectacular. The colorful Tiffany windows were more stunning than any photo could ever show. Each with a fascinating story behind them.

Most informative was the information about the women who worked behind the scenes for Mr. Tiffany. They selected the glass and cut it. Nearly the entire department was run by females including Head Designer, Agnes Northrup whose work can be seen in the floral pieces of the exhibit.

There is so much more to show and tell about my art journey to Chicago, therefore, this will be a three part blog series. Next week I’ll share images of the more religious- in -nature windows of Mr. Tiffany as well as facts about him as an artistic director of his studios. 

Thanks for looking in on us today!
