Description:

Of the many unexpected pleasures awaiting visitors to Central Florida, none may be as dazzling as a stroll through the galleries of The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, home to the world's most comprehensive collection of works by American designer Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848--1933).

Highlights include the restored Byzantine-Romanesque chapel interior that Tiffany designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago and a wing that showcases the Museum's collection of art and architectural objects from Tiffany's celebrated Long Island home, Laurelton Hall. The recently restored Daffodil Terrace, prize-winning leaded-glass windows, iconic Tiffany lamps, and custom furnishings are among the featured installations. Visitors will also enjoy the exhibits of American art pottery, Arts and Crafts furnishings, and late 19th- and early 20th-century American painting and graphics.

The Morse was founded by Jeannette Genius McKean (1909-89) in 1942 and named for her industrialist grandfather. Its collection was built over a half-century by Mrs. McKean and her husband, Hugh F. McKean (1908-95), the museum's director until his death.
