Louis Comfort Tiffany, one of the most original and prolific designers of the late 19th-century, declared that his life-long goal was “the pursuit of beauty.” Although Tiffany worked in a variety of media, from blown glass and ceramics to jewelry and metalwork, it was his stained-glass designs that brought him the greatest recognition. Through years of experimentation—and competition with his early rival John La Farge—Tiffany revolutionized the look of stained glass, which had remained essentially unchanged since medieval times.
