Description

A master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 18481933) was one of America's most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century. Louis C. Tiffany began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and leaded-glass windows, creating revolutionary types of opalescent glass that radiated deep, vibrant hues. Using variations in color and thickness of glass, he achieved pictorial effects of unsurpassed subtlety and beauty. The image on the Museums sturdy ceramic travel cup is adapted from the luminous Dogwood window in the Museum's American Wing, made by Tiffany Studios about 19001915.
