Catalogue Note

The wisteria was one of Tiffany Studio’s most frequent and most beautiful floral emblems in both windows and lampshades.  Louis C. Tiffany used it extensively in his own home, Laurelton Hall in Oyster Bay, Long Island. In this depiction, its lush blue and lavender blooms arch into the scene from the top of the opening, framing it with sinuous, coiled trunks and branches.  This window, with its curved frame, was likely part of a larger ensemble of several panels that perhaps graced a stair landing or a sitting room.
