Louis Comfort Tiffany
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was one of the most prolific and creative artistic talents in America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of the luxury goods store Tiffany & Co. He received early training as a painter and traveled extensively in Europe. By 1879, he became a partner in the short-lived but influential decorating concern Louis C. Tiffany and Associated Artists. In 1883, Tiffany broke off on his own, and by 1892, he established the Tiffany Glass & Decorating Company. By 1902, his firm entered what was perhaps its most prolific period under the name Tiffany Studios
