One of America’s most talented and acclaimed artists, Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1833) forged a career that spanned from the 1870s through the 1920s. He experimented with virtually every artistic and decorative medium, designing and directing his company, Tiffany Studios, to produce mosaics, leaded-glass windows, lighting, glass, pottery, metalwork, enamels, jewelry, and interiors. As the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany (1812–1902), founder of Tiffany & Co., the renowned jewelry and silver firm, Tiffany made the decision to pursue his own artistic interests rather than join the family business.
