Art favorites: Dragonfly lamp

These days Tiffany is known for its jewelry, but I associate Tiffany with works of art made of stained glass, especially lamps.

The dragonfly lamp is one that I visit whenever I am at the Art Institute. I love the colors and the dragonflies. Their gossamer wings look so delicate, and their eyes glow.
