Tiffany, La Farge, and their Revolutionary Glass Windows

With Sylvia Laudien-Meo

The new development of opaque glass panes revolutionized the decoration of churches and homes in the Gilded Age. Two artists, Louis Comfort Tiffany and John La Farge were the main competitors for commissions throughout the country. Their works expressed the new interests in travel to foreign cultures, new passions for nature, an interest in symbolism, the Pre-Raphaelites and Art Nouveau, but especially for complex interior decoration. We will look at the artists’ newly developed techniques as well as some of their most interesting work in New York as well as a bit beyond.
