When we visited the American Decorative Arts Wing of the METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART earlier today, we saw a group of young kids learning about LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY'S stained glass artwork called VIEW OF OYSTER BAY. This work is just one of the many works of art featured in The American Wing. Louis C. Tiffany is one of the most versatile and talented American artists working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The collection highlights the Museum's preeminent collections and features Tiffany's windows, lamps, furniture, mosaics, blown Favrile glass vases, pottery, enamelwork, and jewelry. In addition, there is a rotating display selected from the Museum's collection of more than 400 design drawings from Tiffany's studios.
