Louis Comfort Tiffany: Artist & Innovator
Louis Comfort Tiffany used exotic motifs, extraordinary color, and abstracted forms in his lamps and art glass to become one of the most instrumental figures in American design history. While the Tiffany Studios stopped producing goods almost a century ago, the meticulous craftsmanship that went into the making of the studio’s lamps and vases has turned them into timeless masterpieces.
Benjamin Macklowe will offer a glimpse into the multifaceted world of Tiffany’s art glass and lamps, showing how Tiffany’s process and innovations impacted glass technologies and the world of decorative art over the last hundred years.
