With a foreword by Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, curator of American decorative arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and complete with a biography of Louis Comfort Tiffany, a history of the glasshouse and its extraordinary technical innovations, and profiles of the gifted glassworkers and scientists who created these unique masterpieces, as well as never-before-published documents and archival photographs of Tiffany and his family, The Art Glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany is an essential addition to the libraries of all lovers of Tiffany, art glass and the decorative arts.

Описание: This beautiful book focuses on Laurelton Hall, Louis Comfort Tiffany's extraordinary country estate in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. Beginning in 1902, Tiffany (1848-1933) designed every aspect of the immense home, which had eighty-four rooms and eight levels, and extensive grounds into which the house was carefully integrated. Tiffany's residential masterpiece was also a quasi-museum, for he filled it with his own works - windows, glassware, pottery, enamels, lamps, oil paintings, and watercolours - as well as with objects from his collections of Islamic, Asian, and Native American art.Laurelton Hall burned down in 1957, but about ten years earlier most of its contents had been removed and sold. Every aspect of the estate is examined and re-created in this volume: its terraced gardens with fountains and pools; the many outbuildings; and Tiffany's life there. The interior decoration of Laurelton Hall, a particular focus of the book, is represented by both numerous period photographs and newly commissioned colour photography of surviving artworks and salvaged architectural components from the estate.For all who admire Tiffany and his work, this book presents a unique portrait of his remarkable home.

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.

Описание: 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 every one 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.

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.
