The Tiffany Windows......



This photos is a section from an exquisite pair of Tiffany Windows
presently housed in the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Louis Comfort Tiffany an American - was world famous for his work with
opalescent glassware - especially his Tiffany lampshades
and these beautiful windows are the only known examples
in the southern hemisphere


Unfortunately because of the positioning of the arched windows
in the gallery - I was unable to take a full length photo
but hopefully this small detailed pic will give
you an idea of their wonderful colour and style.

Lovely colors in this stained glass! Never tire of stained glass. You would like my post of 4th of July (of my blog Artistique) where I have my head hidden in a Tiffany lamp
