NameLouis Comfort Tiffany and Laurelton Hall—An Artist’s Country Estate
DescriptionBy Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, with contributions by Elizabeth Hutchinson, Julia Meech, Jennifer Perry Thalheimer, Barbara Veith, and Richard Guy Wilson, 2006. Published in conjunction with the exhibition "Louis Comfort Tiffany and Laurelton Hall—An Artist’s Country Estate" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, November 21, 2006–May 20, 2007. Laurelton Hall, Louis Comfort Tiffany's (American, 1848–1933) extraordinary country estate in Oyster Bay, New York, completed in 1905, was the epitome of Tiffany's achievement and in many ways defined this multifaceted artist. Tiffany designed every aspect of the project inside and out, creating a total aesthetic environment. This publication accompanies an exhibition that reveals Tiffany’s most personal art, bringing into focus this remarkable artist who lavished as much care and creativity on the design and furnishing of his home and gardens as he did on all the wide-ranging media in which he worked. Although the house tragically burned to the ground in 1957, many of its surviving architectural elements and interior characteristics are included in this volume. Also featured are Tiffany's personal collections of his own work—breathtaking stained-glass windows, paintings, glass and ceramic vases—as well as the artist's collections of Japanese, Chinese, and Native American works of art. 276 pages, 350 illustrations (235 in full color), 9 in. x 12 in. Available in hardcover (clothbound, with jacket) or paper.
