The Arts window, a neoclassical masterpiece by J. & R. Lamb Studios, makes its debut at the Morse Museum of American Art, in Winter Park, Florida, as the centerpiece of a major new exhibition of 19th-century windows. Opening at the Morse on Tuesday, October 21. Revival & Reform—Eclecticism in the 19th-Century Environment provides a rare look at the diversity of the decorative arts in the latter 19th century and very early 20th century

Organized from objects in the Morse Museum’s collection, the show features more than 20 additional leaded-glass panels and windows and selections of art glass, pottery, and furniture. Beginning October 29, the Museum will also offer free gallery talks in the exhibition Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Besides works by Lamb Studios, the windows on view—some avant-garde, others reviving styles of the past—include examples by Tiffany Studios, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, and others.
