Kirjeldus: The curator of American decorative arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art reveals the extraordinary work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, discussing his artistic themes and inspiration, technical virtuosity in diverse media, and his achievements in glass, metalwork, ceramics, mosaics, enamels, and jewelry. Original. Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was one of America’s preeminent masters of the decorative arts. Although he is best known for his prodigious achievements in glass, especially for his vibrantly colored windows and lamps, Tiffany excelled in a wide range of media – mosaics, enamels, metalwork, ceramics, and jewelry – all handsomely represented in this publication by pieces from the Metropolitan Museum’s outstanding collection of Tiffany works. Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, curator of American decorative arts at the Metropolitan Museum, presents Tiffany’s works in the context of his career, discusses his artistic themes and his devotion to nature, and sheds new light on his technical virtuosity. She has illustrated her text with many of Tiffany’s water-color presentation drawings selected from the more than 400 in the Museum’s collections. Many of these drawings, made by Tiffany and his artists over a period of forty years, are reproduced here for the first time.
