About Louis Tiffany & the Dogwood Pattern
Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) was one of America's most noted decorative artists at the turn of the twentieth century.
Dogwood demonstrates the Gilded Age visionary's mastery of the medium; it boasts a rich assemblage of textured and shaded glass, lending depth and dimension to the picture. The asymmetrical composition nods to his appreciation of Japanese art as well as nature, his most profound and enduring point of inspiration.
