Tiffany’s Unsung Heroine


Among the splendors of “American%26nbsp;Made: 250 Years of American Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston,” perhaps the most sociologically intriguing is this Art Nouveau-era Dragonfly lamp. The prize-winning light, circa 1906, was designed by one of the artists who worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany in the Tiffany Studios: Clara Driscoll, head of the women’s glass-cutting department. Its inclusion in the MFAH’s expansively curated exhibition, organized by the museum’s Emily Neff and Christine Gervais, is commendable. Through September 16, at MFAH; mfah.org.
