Nothing Says the Weekend Quite Like an Art Exhibit
In 2011, the Morse Museum opened a wing in which to exhibit its collection of art and architectural objects from Louis Comfort Tiffany’s celebrated Long Island home, Laurelton Hall—the largest repository of these materials anywhere. The Daffodil Terrace, installed in a glass-enclosed gallery, is situated with a view of an expanded garden courtyard at the Museum and presented in a manner related to its original location at Laurelton Hall.
The exhibition features the restored Daffodil Terrace and approximately 200 objects from or related to the estate. These include prize-winning leaded-glass windows, iconic Tiffany lamps, custom furnishings, as well as art glass and pottery in Tiffany’s personal collection.
The new Laurelton Hall galleries provide 6,000 square feet of additional public exhibition space and deepen the Morse’s interpretations of Tiffany’s life and legacy. Laurelton Hall, built between 1902 and 1905 and destroyed by fire in 1957, is arguably Tiffany’s greatest work of art.
The artist directed every facet of the estate’s construction, from the room interiors and architectural details to an extensive scheme of gardens and fountains. In addition to the terrace, the 10 galleries at the Morse showcase surviving components of Laurelton Hall’s dining room, living room, and reception hall—also known as the Fountain Court—as well as other rooms, creating a uniquely immersive experience that you will not want to miss out on.
