Louis Comfort Tiffany - Portrait

Louis Comfort Tiffany - Portrait Visual Arts

Louis Comfort Tiffany (pictured here in 1908) was an American artist who enjoyed working with glass.  According to the Museum of Modern Art, which has a Tiffany Collection, Louis (1848–1933) wanted to create with the type of glass available to medieval artists:

Disappointed by the poor quality of American glass, he set out to develop a technique to imitate and surpass the brilliant colour effects achieved by medieval stained-glass artists.

His work is still well-known.  The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, has an extensive web site devoted to its collection of Tiffany's glass.
