The Art of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Vivienne Couldrey, 1996
Louis Comfort Tiffany was the famous son of a famous father. The father founded Tiffany & Co., the son was the leader of American taste in art in decoration for forty years. This lively examination of his life and work includes the dramatic story of Tiffany's rise and fall- a man convinced of his own genius - adventurous and talented enough to be unorthodox, feted and ignored and finally vindicated by time. Over 100 full-scale illustrations reveal the range of Tiffany's genius as a colorist, artist, designer and craftsman.
