Tiffany's Glass Mosaics

Louis C. Tiffany was one of America’s most acclaimed artists and businessmen working in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He directed an artistic empire in the design and creation of leaded-glass windows, lamps, blown glass vessels, objects of luxury, and mosaics—one of his most innovative expressions in the medium of glass.

Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics features essays from noted scholars and curators who, for the first time, investigate the breadth of mosaic production at the company from the 1880s through the 1930s. A detailed appendix lists all of the known public, ecclesiastical, and residential commissions executed by Tiffany’s firm. The publication is richly illustrated with objects from major museums, libraries, and private collections in the United States and Europe. Many of these large-scale murals have never before been photographed or published.

Edited by Kelly A. Conway (Curator of American Glass, The Corning Museum of Glass) and Lindsy R. Parrott (Director and Curator of The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass). Contributions by Morgan T. Albahary, Elizabeth J. De Rosa, Natalie Z. Peters, Jennifer P. Thalheimer, and Karol B. Wight.
