Virtual: Beyond the Glass Ceiling: Agnes Northrup, Designer of Tiffany Windows (Members’ Lecture)

September 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sponsored by the Institute for Classical Architecture and Art, North Carolina Chapter Free; offered exclusively for Museum Members and members of the ICAA-NC. Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This virtual lecture will bring to light new research on Agnes Northrop, the only truly independent woman designer Louis Comfort Tiffany employed. Northrop, under Tiffany’s aegis, introduced wholly new subjects to stained glass—landscapes and gardens—for both religious and domestic settings and designed some of the most memorable windows to emerge from Tiffany Studios.
