The Lamps of Tiffany Studios
Louis C. Tiffany?s brilliantly colored 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 from the renowned Neustadt Collection at the New-York Historical Society have been newly photographed to reveal the sumptuous details found in the glass and metalwork. Intricate patterns dazzle with kaleidoscopic fantasies : wisteria that twist and culs with grace, peonies that explode with color, and dragonflies that dance with the light.
Uniting a reverence for nature and a fascination with the artistic potential of glass, Louis C. Tiffany and lead designer Clara Driscoll created a revolutionary aesthetic that brought the beauty of the natural world into the home. This book explores Tiffany Studios? innovative adaptation of electric light : sheathing the incandescent light bulb in a shimmering veil of leaded glass.
