NY exhibit highlights Tiffany's religious objects

NEW YORK (AP) — Louis Comfort Tiffany was the quintessential tastemaker of the post-Civil War Gilded Age. He's famous for his iridescent leaded-glass windows and lamps. But most of his commissions were for America's houses of worship at a time of unprecedented church-building.

"Louis C. Tiffany and the Art of Devotion" is a new exhibit at The Museum of Biblical Art in New York City. It's the first major show to focus exclusively on Tiffany's religious output of altars, baptismal fonts, mosaics, windows and other liturgical ornamentation. It features 84 objects. Ten are stained-glass windows.

The exhibition runs through Jan. 20.

There's also a luminous window at New York's Temple Emanu-El of the Ten Commandments. The museum will lead tours to see it Dec. 6 and Jan. 9.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
