Perspectives Inspiration

Channeling Edward

June 27 13 MINUTES

Go behind the scenes at The Met with photographer Eileen Travell as she channels the spirit of Edward C. Moore (1827–1891)—the creative force who led Tiffany & Co. to unparalleled originality and success during the second half of the 19th century. In photographing Moore’s vast collection of objects, Eileen discovers a throughline of inspiration running through all he gathered and studied.

Collecting Inspiration: Edward C. Moore at Tiffany & Co. is now on view in Gallery 199 through October 20, 2024.

Photograph of nine objects in the Collecting Inspiration exhibition. All objects are vases or cups of various sizes, shapes, and colors.
