Tiffany Studios, Impressionist Sunset Landscape Window, 1915

Leaded and plated glass, wooden gothic-style frame.

Catalogue Note: The lilies, created using white drapery glass to mimic the soft folds of the petals give both highlights and shadows with the varied thickness and dense rich color. Standing aside a large rock the stems give the illusion of scattered sun and shade through the use of mottled opalescent glass for the leaves and the three small red cap mushrooms at the base the rock. The rock itself, is cast in shadow on the front side by use of several layers of glass "plates" attached on the back side, a technique developed by Tiffany. That technique is used throughout to create shadow and depth, both under the trees and among the foliage where the mottled glass really adds the illusion of dappled sunlight. Layers of wispy opalescent glass on the front side help to add depth and distance to both the trees and the mountains beyond. While a rich blue on amber flashed glass is selectively etched to accent the deep shadows of the foliage. The sky, is also made up of layers to develop its rich hues of amber, pink and blue which along with the foliage, flows beyond the main window opening into the quatrefoil kites to complete and enhance the fullness of the view.

Literature: Alastair Duncan, Tiffany Windows, New York, 1980, pgs. 168-9 (for related examples).
