Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. Exhibited in his New York showrooms on Madison Avenue was a pair of mosaic columns inlaid with glass tesserae, inspired by Roman and Byzantine art. The shimmering columns, in their subtle shading from midnight to pale peacock blues, demonstrate Louis Comfort Tiffanys mastery of the medium. Our bangle design is based on the brilliant mosaics on one of these stunning columns in the Museums collection.

Art History

A master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. He began his career as a painter, but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating opalescent glass that radiated deep vibrant hues. As an extension of his work in favrile and stained glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany also designed glass mosaics for interiors, using his innovative techniques of modeling and shading to produce a wide range of colors within the glass. Lustrous iridescence expanded the range further and helped convey a shimmering quality to the mosaics.
