This volume is the definitive account of Tiffanys highly collectible art glass, which he considered his signature artistic achievement. Called Favrile glass a term presumably coined by Louis Comfort Tiffany himself from the same root as the Latin faber (craftsman, artisan) to underscore its one- of-a-kind quality every piece was blown and decorated by hand. 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.
