Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The first publication to examine the pioneering designer and prolific collector who led Tiffany & Co. to creative and commercial success



Edward C. Moore (1827-1891) was the creative leader who brought unparalleled originality and success to Tiffany & Co. during the late 19th century. A silversmith, designer, and prodigious collector, Moore sought out exceptional objects from around the world, which he then used as inspiration for Tiffany's silver designs. This richly illustrated book is the first study of Moore's life, collection, and influence, presenting more than 170 examples from his vast collection, which ranges from Greek and Roman glass to Spanish vases, Japanese textiles, and Islamic tiles. These works are juxtaposed with 67 magnificent silver objects created by Tiffany's designers and artisans who were inspired by Moore's acquisitions, including the world-famous Bryant Vase, which draws upon Greek examples, and a chocolate pot that incorporates novel techniques from Japanese ceramics, lacquerware, and metalwork. Informative essays incorporate new research from the Tiffany & Co. archives that provides an intimate look at the design process. Collecting Inspiration is an important contribution both to the history of American decorative arts and to our understanding of the legendary Tiffany design aesthetic.

Medill Higgins Harvey is associate curator of American decorative arts and manager of the Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art in The American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
