The panel's textured glass lends a three- dimensional quality and a dazzling iridescence to the grapes.

Art History

Of all of Louis Comfort Tiffanys (American, 18481933) artistic endeavors, leaded glass brought him the greatest recognition. Having begun his career as a painter, he approached his work in glass with a painters eye for the nuances of color and shadow. This led him to seek a more varied palette with richer hues and greater vibrancy, subtlety, and texture, enabling him to paint with glass in the most minute detail. Favrile glass was the perfect medium through which Louis Comfort Tiffany could express his unique blending of nature and exoticism.
