There are special Tiffany pieces not well known - the "lost" works of Louis Tiffany himself, that are, in a real sense, the core of his astonishing achievement. They comprise his personal portfolio - objects made from his original designs for exhibition, private commissions for the studios, or for use in Tiffany's own homes. Many have vanished outright, accidentally or purposely destroyed in the years following Tiffany's death. Many have remained unidentified, and many are simply neglected today. This book re-evaluates his art in terms of his personal work - stained glass, mosaics, blown glass, pottery, jewelry, and enamels. Tiffany's efforts in interior design are covered, as are his easel paintings and his doomed but inspired dream to create a permanent residence retreat for working artists. Over 200 color plates and over 60 black & white photos present a vivid display of Tiffany's wide-ranging aesthetic. This is a rare portrait. Bound in black cloth, the page bottoms have a few gray spots. The jacket has been price-clipped, is shelf worn on the edges with chipped corners and spine ends. Also a triangular tear on the front at the fold, along with a 1" tear and a 1 1/4" tear on the back and wear along the folds. Includes extensive bibliography and index. Heavy, requires extra postage outside of the U. S.; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
