Tiffany Studios, Impressionist Sunset Landscape Window, 1915
Leaded and plated glass, wooden gothic-style frame. Acid-etched mark 'TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 1915'.
Note: The flowers with their variegated pink and white petals surrounded by
finger-like leaves of mottled and streaky green-blue opalescent glass carefully
assembled using the copper foil technique, another Tiffany innovation, that
seems to suggest a low Rhododendron bush among the rocks. Multiple plates on
the reverse side help to develop the mix of shadow and highlight. On the right
stand a few cedar trees stretching up along the side. You can see the heavily
rippled glass used to add texture and highlight to the boughs. They sit atop a
bluff that looks over a lake. An almost silhouetted outcropping of land and a
layer of wispy opalescent glass helps to push the mountain into the distance.
The sky with multiple layers of wispy opal and selectively etched red flashed
glass create a warm hue of what could be viewed as a sunset or sunrise, the sky
along with the trees reach up into the quatrefoil kites above.
Literature: Alastair Duncan, Tiffany Windows, New York, 1980, pgs. 168-9 (for related examples).
