Louis C. Tiffany
Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933) was one of Americas most acclaimed artists working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He embraced virtually every decorative medium, designing and directing the production of windows, mosaics, lighting, glass vases, pottery, metalwork, enamels, jewelry, and interiors. Of all of his creative endeavors, stained glass brought Louis Comfort Tiffany the greatest recognition. His Favrile glass, patented in 1881, was internally colored with variegated shades of the same or different hues and had a milky, opaque, and sometimes rainbow-hued appearance when light shone through it. Unusual effects were created by introducing textures and adding different layers of glass or plating.
Louis Comfort Tiffany’s (American, 1848-1933) reverence for nature found lasting expression in many of his leaded Favrile glass windows. His subject matter included pure landscapes and vividly depicted flowers and plants, as well as animals, birds, and fish. Louis Comfort Tiffanys artistic vision is magnificently displayed in three of the Metropolitan Museums windows, the naturalistic depictions of flowers and plants in Magnolias and Irises, the brilliant use of color and texture in Hibiscus and Parrots, and the sinuous lines of slender twisting vines and decorative qualities in Grapevine Panel.
