A jeweler with an established reputation through the world, Louis Comfort Tiffany was the spearhead of the Art Nouveau movement in the United States. At a time and in a country in perpetual growth, Tiffany succeeded in elevating the decorative to the rank of fine art. Glass was the field of expertise of Tiffany’s workshops. There they developed groundbreaking techniques of treatment which produced beautiful effects on glass. Following the examples of Gallé or Daum, Tiffany made the most of this material: playing with colors, opaqueness and transparency… However, his most famous success is his lamps in mosaic of glass, similar to the cathedral’s stained glass window. Diving into this prism of colors, the author makes us dream again of the birth of this enduring company.

    Тиффани великолепен, и хоть это не самое масштабное исследование его творчества, краткую ретроспективу основных моментов и особенностей стиля Тиффани, оно даёт очень качественно

    The true use of art is, first, to cultivate the artist’s own spiritual nature and, secondly, to enter as a factor in general civilization. And the increase of these efforts depends on the purity of the artist’s motives in the pursuit of art. Every artist who, without reference to external circumstances, aims truly to represent the ideas and emotions which come to him when in the presence of nature is in process of his own spiritual development and is a benefactor of his race.
