Few American artists have undergone such shifts in critical opinion as Louis Comfort Tiffany. Initially as a painter, then as an interior designer and experimenter in the medium of glass, Tiffany attained a position of great status in the arts. However, when America joined the First World War, many critics considered his art shallow and outdated and throughout the 30s and 40s, he was generally forgotten. By 1946, his revival had begun with an exhibition held at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York, organised by Edgar Kaufmann Jr, Lillian Nassau and Edward Wormley. This lovely book, published to accompany the travelling exhibition opening at the Seattle Art Museum in October 2005, showcases 120 objects from all over the world, illustrating Tiffany's wide ranging interests and placing him in context with other significant artists of his time.
