About Louis Comfort Tiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was the son of Harriet Olivia Young and Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany & Co. He began experimenting with stained glassmaking by the 1870s and revolutionized the art form in the years that followed, earning international fame for his innovative use of glass. His New York-based firms are still associated with unsurpassed beauty and originality.
