Описание: The styles and techniques of the ancient mosaicist’s art are given a concise yet authoritative exposition in the first part of this handsome volume. The second, and larger, part conducts the reader on a chronological tour of the most important centers of the art form’s development, from the Macedonian capital of Pella, whose compositions in natural pebbles set a high artistic standard for mosaics at the very beginning of their history, to the Basilica of San Vitale at Ravenna, whose wall and vault mosaics, with their glittering vision of a triumphant Christianity, mark the transition between antiquity and the Middle Ages. Special attention is given to Pompeii and its surroundings, where the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 preserved intact an astonishing variety of mosaics, including such ambitious figural scenes as the famous Alexander mosaic, composed of some four million miniscule tesserae, as well as characteristically Roman pavements in black and white, and the brightly colored wall mosaics of garden grottoes.

Описание: Celebrated for his Art Nouveau stained-glass interpretations of birds, insects, fruits and flowers, Louis Comfort Tiffany was the foremost American designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His enormous influence on his father's famed company, however, has been largely obscured. In this illustrated volume, Tiffany & Co design director John Loring puts into perspective the mutually beneficial bonds between "LCT" and the family firm. The book includes 350 colour images of the jewellery, enamels, blown glass, ceramics, desk accessories and other objets d'art created by LCT during his 16-year tenure as the company's design director, as well as luxury goods produced in his own studios - but in fact financed and retailed by the family company.
Описание: American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany is most famous for his revolutionary and widely popular glass windows, lamps, and vases, but his contributions to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art and design were so much more.

This book presents over 200 of the artists works from the renowned Tiffany collection of The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in chronological sequence, providing a biographical view of the man behind the famous glass.

Описание: The works of the Tiffany Studios revolutionized interior design in turn-of-the-century America. All of the companys works-from stained-glass windows to blown-glass vases; lamp shades to inkwells-bore the unique stamp of one man, Louis Comfort Tiffany, who created the Tiffany Studios and supervised every aspect of their production. Many of these official studio pieces are well known today-avidly sought by museums and collectors worldwide. Special ones among them, as well as other lesser known pieces-the "lost" works of Louis Tiffany himself-are, in a real sense, the core of his astonishing achievement. They comprise his personal oeuvre-the objects made from his original designs for exhibition, for private commissions, or for use in Tiffanys own homes. This book reevaluates Tiffanys art in terms of his personal work-including pieces in all the media that attracted him over the course of his prolific career; stained glass, of course, but also mosaics, blown glass, pottery, jewelry, and enamels. Tiffanys pioneering efforts in interior design are covered, as are his easel paintings and his dream of creating a permanent residential retreat for working artists. Hugh F. McKean also provides much intimate insight into Tiffanys personality, his domestic life, his financial dealings, and his unusual philosophy of art. Lavishly illustrated, the book presents a vivid display of Tiffanys wide-ranging aesthetic. The result is a rare portrait of Tiffany the man-and of the prodigious imagination that almost single-handedly transformed the day-to-day image of a nation and an era.
