Books Info:

The Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany free pdf Experts in the field of Louis Comfort Tiffanys work, Nancy A. McClelland and Lars Rachen have made a selection of exceptional lamps many of which have rarely been seen or published and nearly everyone has been newly photographed to reveal in extraordinary detail the revolutionary artistic quality of Tiffanys glass and the high craftsmanship of these masterpieces of decorative art. Noted authorities on Tiffany, Martin Eidelberg and Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, have contributed essays on the history of these objects enlarging our understanding of Tiffanys achievement. They have drawn upon a host of previously unpublished photographs, paintings, and watercolors by Tiffany and other artists in his employ, as well as on working drawings and studio photographs, and images evoking the lost gardens and interiors of Tiffanys country estate, Laurelton Hall, that so inspired him. They outline the development and manufacture of the Tiffany lamp from freehand sketch to finished form, as well as the chief decorative themes in Tiffanys glass masterpieces and their relation to the work of other fin-de-siecle glassmakers.
