Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library in Winterthur, Del., will host “Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light,” an exhibition of some of the most iconic and celebrated works by artist Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) from Sept. 5 through Jan. 3, 2016.

The exhibition, organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in New York City, will showcase 99 objects including five large windows, 19 lamps of various shapes and sizes and 75 pieces of opalescent flat glass from the Tiffany Studios workshop.

“The pieces were chosen for their masterful rendering of nature in flowers or landscape scenes and for the subtle use of light and shading in decorative geometric patterns,” Neustadt Collection curator Lindsy Perrott said in a statement. “They exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection and intricacy of design so characteristic of Tiffany’s leaded-glass objects.”
