Louis Comfort Tiffany spent his life in 'the pursuit of beauty', something in which he indisputably succeeded - his artwork is counted among the most important of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A key American figure in the Aesthetic and Art Nouveau movements, his designs also impacted Europe and are still influential today. Multitalented in fields ranging from art to business, Tiffany did not limit himself to one medium, working in many different artistic areas. Best known for his windows and glass lamps, he also worked with blown glass, glass mosaics, jewellery, ceramics, metalwork and enamels.

Coming from the well-known Tiffany & Co. family, Tiffany struck out on his own looking to make his own name in the art world, leading to a love of splendour in architecture. This path eventually led him to the important glasswork he would eventually become world-renowned for. The extreme, bold colours of his stained glass and lamps still possess their power to enthrall today. Working with artists such as John La Farge, Arthur J. Nash, Clara Driscoll and influenced by the likes of Emile Galle and William Morris, Tiffany's glass leaves an unforgettable impression. Beginning with a fascinating account of his life and work, this striking book then reproduces Tiffany's most important and stunning pieces in page after page of colour and light, conveying the beauty of his work alongside enlightening captions. His worls are divided into three sectrions, starting with his impressive windows, followed by his famous lamp shades and finishing off with a collection of fabulous decorative pieces that exemplify his style. From his innovative glass techniques used to produce subtle effects, to famous works such as the 'Botticelli Window' or the 'Dragonfly' lamps, to his final window, 'The Tree of Life', Louis Comfort Tiffany: Masterpieces of Art displays his pioneering combination of light and colour, to be enjoyed again and again.
