Angel of the Resurrection
Near the turn of the century, an American artist by the name Louis Comfort Tiffany began his career decorating stained glass. Much of Tiffany’s influence came from the emerging art movement known as Art Nouveau “New Art.” Art Nouveau strove to create “organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly-stylized, flowing curvilinear forms”; “an approach to design according to which artists should work on everything from architecture to furniture, making art part of everyday life.” Thus the Tiffany Lamp was born.

Whilst Art Nouveau eventually fell out of favour during the 20th century, it served as an important bridge from Neoclassicism to Modernism. Yet Tiffany’s work with stained glass to this day remains highly sought after .
