Tiffany, Matisse and Picasso Visit Richmond!

June 16th, 2010

We here in Richmond were thrilled when the Virginia Museum of FineArts re-opened after extensive renovations. With the grand opening of the new McGlothin Wing, comes Tiffany: Color and Light, an exhibition featuring the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, which runs through August 15.

Focusing on Tiffany’s main achievements, this will be the only American museum to showcase this exhibit.

According to the Museum:

Among the exhibition’s more than 180 objects are examples of the leaded-glass windows and lamps for which he is best known as well as blown-glass vessels and decorative objects such as mosaics, jewelry, bronzes, paintings, watercolors, architectural elements, and silver. Eight newly restored windows from the Erskine and American United Church in Montreal – considered one of his most spectacular commissions –  have never before been shown in the United States and will form a dazzling and memorable centerpiece to the presentation.

VMFA members can attend the exhibition for free, while tickets are $15 for adults, and $12 for youth between 7 and 12. Children 6 and under are free.

If you visit the VMFA before July 15, then we’d recommend setting some time aside for Matisse, Picasso and Modern Art in France, an exhibition highlighting the collection of T. Catseby Jones, a Virginia native who purchased incredible works from Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Masson and Lipchitz.

If you’re visiting Richmond and an art fan, then this is something not to be missed!

See you soon,
