Louis Comfort Tiffany is associated with glass, but, as this volume
demonstrates, he excelled in a wide range of media. Here are
examples of Tiffany's work in enamels, jewelry, bronze, ceramics,
mosaics, paintings, and even wood, as well as his glass designs.
The book traces Tiffany's search for influence as a young decorator
and his later ability to shape mass taste. It discusses the cult of
Nature and shows how Tiffany's forms differ from those of the
European Art Nouveau movement. Tiffany's religious and secular
windows, crucial in determining his status as an international
glass artist, are covered.
