Tiffany Studios

American, 1890
Tiffany Studios was established by the American artist and designer, Louis Comfort Tiffany, in 1881. Originally known as the Louis C. Tiffany and Company, Associated Artists, the company, which brought together some of history’s most celebrated decorative artists, including Lockwood de Forest and Candace Wheeler, completed projects for such luminaries as Mark Twain, Cornelius Vanderbilt II, and President Chester Arthur, before the partnership dissolved in 1883. From them on, Tiffany worked primarily alone.
While he specialized in glass (and occassionally, bronze), Tiffany experimented with everything from furniture and lamps to metalwork and textiles, pottery, enamels, jewelry, and book design. Associated with the Aesthetic Movement and Art Nouveau, Tiffany is known for his beautifully crafted lamps that feature organic forms, often drawn from nature, and his masterful use of color. A tireless innovator, Tiffany toyed with new glassmaking methods, ultimately pioneering Favrile glass—a richly-hued, iridescent glass that became his trademark.
Tiffany achieved monumental success during the early twentieth century, but after World War I, as tastes shifted to more simplified styles, his designs fell out of favor. Tiffany Studios declared bankruptcy in 1932. Louis Comfort Tiffany died in 1933. During the 1950s, a renewed interest in Tiffany led to the re-discovery of his work, which continues to be in high demand today.
