Book, The Art Work of Louis C. Tiffany

This is a Book. It was written by Louis Comfort Tiffany and published by Doubleday.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Smithsonian Libraries and Archives as part of Botanical Expressions.

It is dated 1914. Its medium is lithograph on paper. It is a part of the department.

In addition to his work as a glass artist, Louis C. Tiffany was also
an architect, who designed both landscapes and interiors. In 1902,
Tiffany began construction of a large house and country estate
called Laurelton Hall near Oyster Bay, Long Island, which features
prominently in the pages of this biography. The Laurelton Hall complex
was a complete aesthetic environment that encouraged a close
relationship with nature, both outside, with loggias giving view
to 60 acres of carefully planned gardens, and inside, with hanging
potted plants and fountains throughout the rooms

It is credited Sarah and Eleanor Hewitt, former owners, Smithsonian Libraries, N6537 .T5A78 1914.
