A master of many media, Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) was one of America’s most noted decorative artists at the turn of the century. Son of the founder of the silver and jewelry firm Tiffany and Company of New York, Louis Tiffany began his career as a painter but moved quickly to interior decoration and other decorative media. In addition to leaded glass windows and lighting fixtures, Tiffany Studios produced exceptional works in wood, bronze, and enamel, as well as jewelry, blown glass, pottery, furniture, and textiles. Tiffany designed the brilliant, five-paneled Magnolia window for the Tiffany mansion in New York City, where it was placed in the grand library. Divided by heavy leading, sections of the window were composed of graceful branches blossoming with pearly leaves and dotted with yellow and silver-gray leaf buds primed to open. Our Tiffany Magnolia Bookmark is based on details from the original window that was made about 1885. Produced in cooperation with the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida.
