Magnolias and Irises, 1908

Louis Comfort Tiffany

A beautiful stream zigzags through a little valley into a lake at sunset. An arbor of magnolias, above, and a field of bright purple irises, below, frame the peaceful scene. It’s easy to get lost in this artwork’s soft pastel beauty and forget that it’s made entirely of glass: mottled, multi-hued sections for the sky, mountains and lake and individual tiny pieces, expertly fitted, for the flowers and branches. Tiffany Studios designed this window as a memorial for a New York family; the stream represents a river of life.
