About this item

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) is celebrated today as one of the most influential designers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Though the products of Tiffany Studios-from leaded glass windows and lamps to metalwork, enamels, furniture, and textiles-have been justly acclaimed for their artistic value, the process of creating these objects and the individuals involved have remained mostly obscure.

A New Light on Tiffany: Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls presents celebrated works of Tiffany Studios in an entirely new context, focusing on the women who labored behind the scenes at Tiffany Studios. Based on information revealed in recently discovered letters written by Tiffany designer Clara Driscoll (1861-1944), this lovely book explores Driscoll's artistic achievements and her role as manager of the "Tiffany Girls"-the department of women who created many of Tiffany's lamps, windows, mosaics, and other luxury goods.
