The Lamps of Tiffany Studios : Nature Illuminated
Louis C. Tiffany's intricate and brilliantly coloured masterpieces have captivated collectors for decades. This collection showcases eighty of the firm's most iconic lamps, including rare and one-of-a-kind creations. These examples have all been newly photographed in sumptuous detail to reveal features in the glass and metalwork that have never been seen before in print.
Uniting a reverence for nature and a fascination with the artistic potential of glass, Louis C. Tiffany and his designers created a revolutionary design aesthetic that brought the beauty of the natural world into the home. This book, which accompanies an exhibition at the New York Historical Society Library and Museum, also explores Tiffany Studios' innovative adaptation of electric light: sheathing the incandescent light bulb in a shimmering veil of leaded glass. Beautifully designed and produced in an intimate format, this volume presents a jewel-box package that makes the perfect gift for any art lover.
