Art History

Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. Son of the founder of Tiffany & Co. of New York, Louis C. Tiffany began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating innovative opalescent glass in vibrant hues. Louis Comfort Tiffany designed a window panel for the Manhattan home of silk industry scion William C. Skinner whose family home in Holyoke, Massachusetts, was named Wistariahurst. However, this panel has long been called View of Oyster Bay because the scene so closely resembles views from the north shore of Long Island, New York, where Louis Comfort Tiffany built his grand country estate Laurelton Hall between 1902 and 1905.
