ORLANDO, FL ( REUTERS) .- The last major art works from the estate of American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany will go on permanent display for the first time in February at Florida’s Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art. A new 6,000-square-foot gallery at the Winter Park museum will be opened on February 19, nearly 54 years after a fire destroyed Laurelton Hall, the turn-of-the-century New York home of Tiffany, who was best known for his leaded glass works. The gallery will house the surviving components of the estate, including the reassembled Daffodil Terrace, an outdoor room marked by eight 11-foot (3.4 meter) marble columns topped with wreaths of glass flowers and covered by a cedar, tile and glass ceiling. “Laurelton Hall was not simply another house that he did,” said
