Two introductory videos to the Morse Museum, its history, and the restoration of the Tiffany Chapel from 1893.
Navigating to “Introduction to the Morse Museum” on the Morse homepage:
A Legacy for the Community: In founding The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Jeannette Genius McKean (1909–89) was continuing a history of family philanthropy dating back to when her grandfather Charles Hosmer Morse began visiting the small town of Winter Park, Florida, in the latter part of the 19th century. She and her husband, Hugh F. McKean (1908–95), built for the Morse the most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany anywhere and endowed it so that it would forever serve the community they loved as a source of cultural enrichment and education.
The Tiffany Chapel—A Masterpiece Rediscovered: Louis Comfort Tiffany designed a chapel interior for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago that was a sensation, propelling his reputation as an artist to even greater heights. The chapel was almost destroyed twice, rescued once by Tiffany himself and finally by Hugh and Jeannette McKean. This is its story and that of its restoration at the Morse Museum more than 100 years after its creation.
