The book Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection explores Richard H. Driehaus’s unique collecting vision and Tiffany Studios’ largely unknown legacy in Chicago. Newly commissioned photographs highlight the subtle detail and rich coloring of each object, revealing why Tiffany remains revered in the realm of interior design and decorative arts. Vividly colored, enriched with ornament, and boldly scaled, the book provides an intimate look into the artistry and craftsmanship of Tiffany, and is a unique opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts alike to experience the objects as never before seen.

David A. Hanks served as Associate Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, and is the curator of the Stewart Program for Modern Design in Montreal. He has written extensively on 19th- and 20th-century decorative design, including The Century of Modern Design.

Richard H. Driehaus, the businessman, philanthropist, and founder of the Driehaus Museum, is a prominent collector of late 19th- and early 20th-century fine and decorative arts.
