Clara and Mr. Tiffany

Clara and Mr. Tiffany
by Susan Vreeland

Clara Driscoll worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany as a glass artist in the 1890s through the first decade of the twentieth century. This interesting historical novel is based on this period in her life. Set in New York City, Vreeland deals with many of the social issues of the time. Women in the workplace, women’s rights, immigrant living and working conditions are a few that are examined.

A fascinating look into the art of Tiffany Studio and a riveting period in America.
