Book, The Art Work of Louis C. Tiffany
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
