Trust the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts to launch a colour-inspired retrospective in the gloomy month of Februray.
The first of its kind in Canada, Tiffany Glass: A Passion for Colour presents 180 vases and glass-blown lamps from 19th century designer Louis C. Tiffany (son of the legendary silversmith). Extra special are the magnificent stained glass windows, including one striking piece that was inspired by a Toulouse-Lautrec watercolour.
