Abstract:

"Celebrated for his stained-glass interpretations of birds, insects, fruits, and flowers, Louis Comfort Tiffany was the foremost American designer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and a leader of the Art Nouveau movement. But while the windows, lamps, and iridescent glass vases he created at Tiffany Studios are world famous, his remarkable contribution as a designer to the illustrious firm founded in 1837 by his father, Charles Lewis Tiffany, has been obscured. Louis Comfort Tiffany at Tiffany & Co. chronicles the younger Tiffany's enduring imprint on the internationally renowned jeweler and purveyor of luxury goods." "Through a lively, informative text and more than 350 glorious photographs, author John Loring - who has written eleven previous books on aspects of Tiffany & Co.'s rich legacy - showcases the panoramic range of Louis Comfort Tiffany's art, which included jewelry, enamels, ceramics, mosaics, accessories for the home and office, clocks, and other sumptuous decorative objects that were created during his influential tenure as design director at Tiffany & Co. from 1902 to 1913."--BOOK JACKET.
