Met Museum Louis C. Tiffany Peacock Feather Shawl (79" x 28" Wool, Viscose, Silk)


A key figure in the American decorative arts, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s designs remain as au courant as they were more than a century ago. The metallic accents and rich color put the “Gilded” in Gilded Age, but without ostentation, and the compositions often draw from the natural world, as in this shawl. The design evokes a peacock’s feathers, and illustrates Tiffany’s favrile process, which blends colors together while molten, in a sumptuous tapestry of color and form.
