The leader of American taste in art and decoration for forty years, Louis Comfort Tiffany's prodigious energy and creativity found form in stained glass, mosaic, pottery, enamels, tapestries, jewellery, furniture, landscape and house design. But, with the harsh realities of WWI and the reaction against the bizarre fantasies and creative imaginings of the Art Nouveau, came the end of Tiffany's popularity. It was only in the 1950s that a new interest in Tiffany glass began to emerge. Here, superb, full-color illustrations reveal the full range of his genius as a colorist, artist, designer, and craftsman.
