Tiffany Girls: Casting New Light on the Women Behind the Glass

Meet the remarkable women designers of Tiffany Studios and be inspired by their prolific work from the early twentieth century. Although they mostly remain anonymous, this talented group of “Tiffany Girls” worked tirelessly to create many of the masterpieces associated with the founder, Louis Comfort Tiffany, including the iconic stained-glass lamps. Their leader, Clara Driscoll, did the unthinkable for that time; she managed a cohort of fifty women artists, won the 1900 World’s Fair design award, fended off an attack by the men’s union and attained independent financial success.

Katherine Saville will share intriguing behind-the-scenes stories involving the vibrant personalities who collaborated to produce the very best in design and flair. “Tiffany Girls” examines Clara Driscoll’s role in and impact on the historic atelier of Louis Comfort Tiffany.

The talk is complemented by a tour of the Tiffany stained glass windows at First Presbyterian Church, conducted by Paul Bergmann, on Saturday, February 29 at 10 am. If you would like to attend the tour ONLY, please register on that event listing.
