Description

The extraordinary Garden Landscape mosaic, now in the Metropolitan Museums American Wing, depicts nature in all its abundant glory with tall cypresses set against a pale multicolored sky. Two swans carve a slender ripple in the placid shimmering pool, which supports a cluster of pink water lilies. The landscape is framed by a green and blue ornamental border with shimmering gold-foil-backed glass and an outer border of midnight blue. Our Mosaic Water Lilies Scarf is adapted from details of the original mosaic.

Art History

Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of Americas most acclaimed and multi-talented artists working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating innovative types of opalescent glass that radiated deep, vibrant hues. As an extension of his work in Favrile and stained glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany began to design glass mosaics for interiors, attributing his inspiration to the dazzling interiors of the Byzantine churches he had visited as a young man. Rather than using traditional flat, solid- color squares, or tesserae, he took advantage of his innovative techniques of modeling and shading to produce a wide range of colors within the glass itself.
