Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. Louis C. Tiffany began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating innovative opalescent glass in vibrant hues. He designed a window panel for the Manhattan home of silk industry scion William C. Skinner whose family home in Holyoke, Massachusetts, was named Wistariahurst. However, this panel has long been called View of Oyster Bay because the scene so closely resembles views from the north shore of Long Island, New York, where Louis Comfort Tiffany built his grand country estate Laurelton Hall between 1902 and 1905.
The Museums View Oyster Bay Glass Panel is based on Louis Comfort Tiffanys (American, 18481933) glass window featuring a tranquil bay landscape through a canopy of lush wisteria. The View of Oyster Bay stained glass window was originally designed in 1908 for the Manhattan home of silk industry scion William C. Skinner, and is now on display in the Museum’s American Wing. Produced in cooperation with the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida. Glass. Hand painted. Copper patina frame.
