Louis C. Tiffany and the Art of Devotion


Louis C. Tiffany and the Art of Devotion Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For over half a century, Louis C. Tiffany oversaw the production and marketing of a multitude of decorative elements for many of America's leading congregations— Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish. This beautifully illustrated volume includes preliminary designs, cartoons, watercolor sketches, and archival photographs of these windows, interiors, and pieces of ecclesiastic furniture, many never published before.


The first volume to explore the vast assortment of church decorations and memorials produced by the Tiffany Studios.
