Description

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) found inspiration in the gardens of Laurelton Hall, his vast country estate on Long Island's North Shore. There, Tiffany carefully drew and painted the flowering trees, vines, flowers, and fauna that were the chief ornaments of his prized glass lamps. This sumptuous volume features 70 lamps, photographed by Colin Cooke using his own specially developed techniques that reveal Tiffany's mastery of glassmaking and metal work. The authors relate the chief decorative themes in Tiffany's masterpieces to the work of other fin-de-siècle glassmakers and outline the making of Tiffany's lamps, from freehand sketch to elegant finished form. Praise for The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany:
"The publication of The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany is a dazzling roundup of some of the beauties. The lamps--many are on view for the first time--are shown in full glory by gifted New York photographer Colin Cooke. This 'eye candy' at its very best." - San Jose Mercury News "The authors delve into Tiffany's inspiration, his garden on Long Island, and other works the Tiffany studio was producing; not to mention over 70 examples of some of the most amazing lamps you've ever seen. Definitely add this book to the shopping list, you won't be disappointed!" --Architect Design blog
