9780865653047: The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany considered his Favrile glass, produced between the 1890s and 1920s, his signature artistic achievement. Now highly collectible, the glass underscores one-of-a-kind quality—every piece was blown and decorated by hand. This definitive account explores the full range of Tiffany Studios’ remarkably diverse and innovative styles and forms, captured here in sumptuous photographs. From the exquisite delicacy of the Flowerform vases to the dramatic golden flow of the Lava vases, the book highlights a variety of unique masterpieces. With a biography of Louis Comfort Tiffany, a history of the glasshouse and its extraordinary technical innovations, and profiles of the gifted glassworkers and scientists behind the artworks, as well as never-before-published documents and archival photographs of Tiffany and his family, The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany showcases the mastery and vision behind these remarkable works. Praise for The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany:

"Though there are numerous books on the lamps, stained glass windows, and jewelry of Louis Comfort Tiffany, it is rare that the focus is on the art objects of the highly influential Art Nouveau artist and designer. A newly-published book, The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany (Vendome Press, $75), addresses that with over 200 pages of photography and scholarly analysis of this important aspect of Tiffany’s multi-faceted career."— Glass Quarterly
"In what has been described as the definitive account of Louis Comfort Tiffany's art glass, this book comes with the expert insight of author Paul Doros...Plenty of books have been written about Tiffany. Few focus on his art glass. This title is a gem." -Antique Week
