"Louis Comfort Tiffany: The Painting Career of a Colorist" traces the four developmental stages of Tiffany's (1848-1933) painting style. Citing the impact of George Inness and Samuel Colman upon Tiffany's early career, this book explains how Tiffany combines traditional painting methods, influenced by the color and prismatic iridescence of glass, and theories of color-light optics, to create shimmering pastels and paintings. Tiffany's final work uses jewel-like color to illustrate landscapes, interiors, and images of virtuous women. The paintings are a visual record of his journeys to Europe, North Africa, and Canada.

Louis Comfort Tiffany is one of the most important artistic figures of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The key player and protagonist of the Art Nouveau and Aesthetic movements in America, and a considerable influence in Europe, he was an artist, designer, craftsman and businessman who wanted to bring art to the people. It is for his rich and vibrant stained glass windows and lamps that Tiffany is best rembered and still loved today.
