Beyond the Glass Ceiling: Agnes Northrop, Designer of Tiffany Windows
Hosted by the Northern California Chapter and the Reynolda House Museum of American Art
EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR FOR ICAA AND REYNOLDA HOUSE MEMBERS! REGISTER BY WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16.
Speaker: Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Building on Frelinghuysen's extensive study of the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, this lecture will bring to light new research on Agnes Northrop, the only truly independent woman designer Louis Comfort Tiffany employed. In spite of her prominent role at the time, few windows, until recently, have been attributed to her, and her significance has been long overshadowed by Tiffany himself and by other women in his employ. 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.
