The Lamps of Tiffany Studios presents the radiant and beloved masterworks of leaded glass from the Gilded Age. Louis C. Tiffany's intricate and brilliantly colored masterpieces have captivated collectors for decades, and continue to inspire crafters who recreate them in home workshops today. This book features eighty of the Studios most iconic lamps, including rare and one-of-a- kind creations celebrated in the Museum's new Tiffany Gallery, a stunning immersive display space for New-York Historical's exceptional Tiffany collection.
The lamps have all been newly photographed in sumptuous detail to reveal features in the glass and metalwork that have never been seen before in print. Intricate patterns dazzle with kaleidoscopic fantasies: wisteria that twists and curls 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 his designers created a revolutionary design 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. Beautifully designed and produced in an intimate format, The Lamps of Tiffany Studios makes the perfect gift for any art lover.
