Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848-1933) was one of the foremost decorative artists of his time. His father, Charles Lewis Tiffany, was the co-founder of Tiffany & Company, the luxury retailer best known for fine silver and jewelry. At an early age Tiffany was exposed to superbly-designed and expertly-crafted objets d’art, undoubtedly stimulating his love and appreciation for exceptional objects and setting him on a self-proclaimed “quest for beauty.” Tiffany began his career as a landscape painter but eventually branched out into interior design and the decorative arts. Over the years he formed a number of companies in both Manhattan and Queens that manufactured leaded-glass windows, lamps, mosaics, glassware, enamels, ceramics, metalwork, furniture, and textiles. These works were available at his Manhattan showroom and in fine retail and jewelry stores throughout the United States and Europe. Special commissions were an important part of Tiffany’s businesses. Many of his clients were wealthy, socially-prominent families seeking unique objects and interiors for their lavish homes.

Special commissions were an important part of Tiffany’s businesses. Many of his clients were wealthy, socially-prominent families seeking unique objects and interiors for their lavish homes. Churches also ordered elaborate interiors, including windows, lighting fixtures, mosaics, and ecclesiastical furniture. Some examples of these interiors can still be seen in New York City.
