Lamp
Tiffany & Co.
c.1895-1898
This lamp is among the earliest produced by Tiffany studios, made before Tiffany embarked on the predominantly floral leaded-glass lampshades for which the firm is known. Especially unusual is the use of blown Favrile glass for the oil font, as he had only begun experimenting with blown glass a few years earlier. Typical of his inventiveness, the lamp combines materials and exotic patterns (the bronze collar includes an Islamic-inspired design) to produce an object of exquisite richness. The paisley-shape glaze jewels that ornament the scroll feet are elements found in the decorative program Tiffany executed for Louisine and Henry O. Havemeyer’s house in the early 1890s.

Recently I went to one of my favorite museums of all times, the Muskegon Art Museum, and discovered this new bronze by UK artist, Beth Carter, Minotaur Reading. When people think of the myth of the Minotaur it's almost always in context of his violence, his lust, his impossible body. Here all that is swept away with this monstrous form reading a small golden book. This made me crazy happy to see.
