On view through May 20

View outstanding masterworks by revered artists who recorded some of the most newsworthy events and impressive spectacles of 18th-century Europe.

Tiffany and Fabergé Galleries

Visit the Tiffany and Fabergé galleries to see the museum’s superb collections of works by American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany and his Russian counterpart, Peter Carl Fabergé. The newly redesigned galleries position the artists’ works so they face one another more directly: Fabergé heralding traditional, historicist designs, and Tiffany trumpeting the modern notes of the Art Nouveau. The galleries are named in honor of the Ruth and Charles Maurer Family and the Cara and Howard Stirn Family, respectively.
