LOUIS COMFORT TIFFANY: THE PAINTING CAREER OF A COLORIST The painting career of Louis Comfort Tiffany reflects the diverse nature of an extraordinarily creative man. His paintings portray a wide range of settings, subjects, and themes. His paintings are a visual record, an actual account of his journeys to Europe, North Africa, and in later years Canada. The paintings document Tiffany’s family life with a jewel-like use of color, attention to detail, and a particular figural naivete. This text documents the stylistic development of his unique American realism combined with the evolution of Tiffany’s color concepts.
