This virtual lecture will bring to light new research on Agnes Northrop, the only truly independent woman designer Louis Comfort Tiffany employed. Northrop, under Tiffany’s aegis, introduced wholly new subjects to stained glass—landscapes and gardens—for both religious and domestic settings, and designed some of the most memorable windows to emerge from Tiffany Studios.
