Tiffany Studios Stained Glass Window of The Boy Jesus in the Temple, 1893 after Heinrich Hoffmann
This exquisite Tiffany stained glass window came from a Baptist church in Danbury, Connecticut. Louis Comfort Tiffany was born in New York City in 1848 to the founder of Tiffany & Co., the famous jewelry store, and became known for his designs of richly colored works of glass in the Art Nouveau style. By 1875, he had begun to work with stained glass for which he is primarily known, and developed a method of shaping glass in its molten state, allowing him to create a mosaic effect. Tiffany's glass was groundbreaking in all areas of color, texture, and design. He developed techniques of glass that had never been used before. Louis Comfort Tiffany produced windows up until his death in 1933.
