A master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most noted decorative artists at the turn of the century. Louis C. Tiffany began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating innovative types of opalescent glass that radiated deep, vibrant hues. Using variations in color and thickness of glass, he achieved pictorial effects of unsurpassed subtlety and beauty.
Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows. Starting in 1898 the artist adapted his method of making windows to the production of artful lampshades, frequently inspired by natural motifs. Although his craftsmen used patterns, each lampshade was unique due to the selection of the individual pieces of glass. These vibrant domed magnets feature lampshades from the collection of the New-York Historical Society Museum.
