Part art history and part biography, this pioneering work explores the life and art of Louis Comfort Tiffany through the eyes of the author who spent time as a young artist at Tiffany's Laurelton Hall estate on Long Island. Containing more than 200 color plates, the book explores in depth the many media that Tiffany worked in over his lifetime: leaded glass, mosaics, blown glass, pottery, jewelry, enamels, painting, and even interior design. Hugh McKean (1908–95) presents a rare portrait of Tiffany the man in a discussion of Tiffany's lesser-known personal works—his "lost" works—that were at the core of his great artistic achievement.
