The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany

Author: Paul Doros

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.
