Halim Time and Glass Museum Features Tiffany’s Woman with Daughter

Cameel Halim

The owner of the Halim Time and Glass Museum in Evanston, Illinois, Cameel Halim draws on his longtime passion for art and history by collecting antique clocks and stained-glass masterpieces. The museum's pieces come from the extensive personal collection of Cameel Halim and his family.

One of the works exhibited in the Halim Time and Glass Museum is a stained-glass window called Woman with Daughter. It shows a woman and a child standing in a terrace garden overlooking a body of water. Their identities as well as the location are unknown, but the museum’s official website speculates that the artwork may have been inspired by the estate of Louis C. Tiffany, the renowned stained glass artist.
Created by the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company in 1900, the window was layered with opalescent, striated, and drapery glass. Instead of painting over the surface, the Tiffany company relied on the color, texture, and opacity of the myriad glass pieces used in order to produce an image.

The stained-glass window can be viewed in the museum’s first-floor Treasures of Louis Comfort Tiffany gallery. To learn more about the museum and its collection, please visit halimmuseum.org.
