So .......... you've seen all the books written about
Louis C. Tiffany, and you've seen the pictures - over and over and over?
NOT THIS TIME, my friend! This extraordinary work is destined to become as highly
collected as any of Tiffany's works!
This is a huge book - 671 pages, filled with sumptuously photographed treasures, many
shown for the first time. Printed on high quality stock, and presented in it's own slip
case, this book feels absolutely "Imperial"!
Alastair Duncan guides us through the "mind boggling" collection assembled by
Mr. Horiuchi, one of the greatest Tiffany collectors of the twentieth century. Louis C.
Tiffany: Garden Museum Collection - presents virtually all of the known disciplines
designed and manufactured by Louis Tiffany and his Tiffany Studios. Items include
Tiffany's own paintings & photographs, plus a wealth of designs and watercolors from
the design studios, windows, lamps, glass, pottery, metalwork, furniture, enamels,
woodwork, silver, Liturgical items, and perhaps the most comprehensive selection of
Tiffany's jewelry ever gathered in one place!
Additional chapters cover the effects of Tiffany on the Art Nouveau movement in Europe and
America, and vice versa. Numerous European makers are discussed, with prime examples of
their works - including complete rooms - represented.
If you own twenty books on Tiffany, or were to buy only one book to study and enjoy the
extraordinary works of this great genius, this book is a must. Exhaustive in it's scope,
timeless in it's beauty, this will be the benchmark for future writers.
もし貴方が何十冊ものティファニー本を持っていたら・・・。あるいはもし貴方が、たった一冊のティファニー本を購入するならこの一冊 というのが 評者の感想。大きさ(重さ）も、内容も驚きの豪華本。
