The Evolution of L.C. Tiffany
Tiffany is one of the most popular American artists, and his later work on Tiffany lamps and stained-glass church windows is well documented. Becoming Tiffany takes a different approach to the artist’s life and work and focuses on his early work as a painter and decorator.

The first segment of the exhibition highlights Tiffany’s origins in the 1870s as a second-generation Hudson Valley painter, often considered a radical in both theme and technique.

The Gould Family as
L.C. Tiffany Patrons

In addition to documenting Tiffany’s early career trajectory from painter to decorator, the exhibition also documents how Tiffany worked with wealthy neighbors, such as Lyndhurst owners Jay Gould and his daughter Helen, to further his career.

Based on photographs, catalogs and inventories recently received from Gould family descendants, Lyndhurst curators have been able to establish the Gould family as consistent and early purchasers of Tiffany’s works.
