Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was one of America's preeminent masters of the decorative arts. Best known for his achievements in glass, especially for his vibrantly colored windows and lamps, Tiffany also excelled in mosaics, enamels, metalwork, ceramics, and jewelry. All of these are handsomely represented here in freshly photographed works from the outstanding collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

In what is possibly the most lavishly illustrated book available on Tiffany, Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen presents his works in the context of his career, which included designing jewelry for Tiffany & Co., founded by his father. She discusses his artistic themes and devotion to nature and sheds new light on his technical virtuosity, including his invention of iridescent Favrile glass.

Each page in this volume proclaims Tiffany's inexhaustible creativity and perfectionism in every medium. Many off his drawings are published here for the first time.
