In 1890 the American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848 – 1933) created this masterpiece in glass. It is now housed at the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida. www.morsemuseum.org It is a rather large piece, having a diameter of about six feet.
I had the privilege of seeing this work and being granted permission to photograph it and many other of his glass creations while I was on a press trip covering the arts and culture of the Orlando area. It is, of course, a fitting image for this time of year. I hope you enjoy the beauty.
