The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany
By Paul Doros; Foreword by Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen
This superbly produced volume is the definitive account of Louis Comfort Tiffany's highly collectible art glass, which he considered his signature artistic achievement, produced from the 1890s to the 1920s.
Called favrile glass, every piece was blown and decorated by hand. The book presents the full range of remarkably diverse and inventive styles and shapes that Tiffany's glasshouse produced, from the exquisite delicacy of the flower forms to the dramatically dripping golden flow of the "lava" vases, and much more.
This fine book includes a biography of Tiffany, a history of the glassworks and its extraordinary technical innovations, and profiles of the gifted glassworkers and scientists who created the unique masterpieces, along with never-before-published documents and archival photographs of Tiffany and his family.
