Louis Comfort Tiffany

One of America’s premier artists was largely responsible for the way the interior of Emmanuel appears today.  In 1905, following the deaths of two of the Parish’s more prominent members, he came to Cumberland and redesigned the Chancel.  Over the course of 18 years, various component parts of his design were acquired and installed. 

The Adoration of the Shepherds is the most prominent window in the Church.  At the east end above the High Altar, it depicts a scene derived from a painting by the same name by the French artist Adolphe-William Bouguereau. The theme celebrates the beginning of the congregation on Christmas Day, 1749.

The High Altar and Reredos are of Carrara marble and Caen stone, carved by Tiffany Studios and dedicated in 1906.

A cross and pairs of candelabra and candlesticks were designed by Tiffany and executed and purchased over the years as memorial gifts.  The signed drawings for these items are framed and hang in the Parish House.  

The Second Coming of Christ is the subject of the window in the west wall of the Church.  It also was made in 1906 and is in the Art Nouveau style.

Rizpah, whose story appears in the Second Book of Samuel, is depicted in the window of the south transept. This is perhaps the most unusual of the Tiffany windows, owing to its dark subject, the use made of purples and oranges, and the Art Deco style in which this work is rendered.

            Louis Comfort Tiffany   Louis Comfort Tiffany   Louis Comfort Tiffany was born in 1848, the youngest son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, who was a founder and principal owner of Tiffany & Company, and Harriet Olivia Avery Young. His older brother, Charles Comfort Tiffany, became the Episcopalian archdeacon of New York.

Before the 1880s, Louis Tiffany lived in an apartment building on 26th Street, while his father maintained a house on Madison Avenue near 38th. In 1882, Charles Tiffany contracted with McKim, Mead & White to design a new residence on the southwest corner of Madison Avenue and 72nd Street, across from the Rhinelander Mansion. Louis assumed control of the project, working intensively with architect Stanford White to create one of the most unusual residences in New York. The 57-room mansion was completed in 1885, and while it is generally referred to as Louis Tiffany's house, there were in fact three apartments. The first, on the first and second floors, was frequently said to be for Charles, although he never occupied it. The second apartment, taking up the third floor, was for Louis's unmarried sister, Louise. The fourth and fifth floors contained the apartment for Louis.

The studio, on the upper floor of Tiffany's duplex, was actually about three or four stories in total height, and featured a large space which was open to the gables. Suspended from the ceiling were decorative ironwork, brasses and glassware which created a mysterious atmosphere. Near the center of the studio was a four-hearth fireplace which rose from the floor like an Art Nouveau tree trunk culminating in a chimney made of concrete.

Louis Comfort Tiffany relied on the enormous financial and entrepreneurial resources of his father's firm, Tiffany & Company.  Although Tiffany & Company and Tiffany Studios were two distinct and separate firms, Louis Tiffany was affiliated with both in an executive capacity. He was, therefore, able to advertise and sell Tiffany Studios’ products at Tiffany & Company, which proved to be a mutually advantageous arrangement, especially for retailing lamps and small accessories. Although Tiffany lamps, windows, and decorative accessories continued to be made through the 1920s, the heyday of production ended at the onset of World War I when European markets closed and tastes changed. His father's firm, Tiffany & Company, still continues in operation serving customers at the main store in New York City and a host of branches throughout the world.

Louis married Mary Woodbridge Goddard on May 15, 1872, and had two sons and two daughters. After the death of his wife in 1884, he married Louise Wakeman Knox on November 9, 1886. Louis and Louise had one son and three daughters. In 1905, Tiffany built Laurelton Hall, a luxurious country estate in Oyster Bay, L.I., where he had the room to carry out his decorative ideas more fully. Although he spent less time in New York after Laurelton Hall was built, he died in the 72nd Street house in 1933. The Tiffany mansion was demolished in 1936 and replaced by a large apartment building.           Estey Organ Company Brattleboro, Ver. – Opus 1584 (1917) Electro-pneumatic action 2 manuals

CHAPEL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

In 1917 the Estey Organ Company built a two-manual organ for the "Chapel of the Holy Spirit" in the Tiffany residence. This organ was moved at an unknown time to St. Martha's Episcopal Chapel in The Bronx. Specifications for this organ have not yet been located.           Aeolian Organ, Op. 925 (1902) in the Studio of Louis Comfort Tiffany - New York City (photo: Organ Historical Society) Aeolian Company New York City – Opus 925 (1902); enlarged 1907 Electro-pneumatic action 2 manuals, 19 stops, 23 ranks



The Aeolian organ in Tiffany's Manhattan townhouse was installed on a balcony in the fifth floor studio, with the console located on the main floor of the 45-foot tall room. This organ did not have a pipe screen, and the console case was designed by Tiffany. Originally built in 1902 with 12 ranks, the organ was enlarged in 1907 with the addition of an 11-rank Echo division, plus harp and chimes, for a total of 23 ranks.             Manuale I – 61 notes, enclosed (3½" pressure) 8   Principal Grande 61 4   Flauto Ottava 61 8   Violetta Marina 61 8   Trombetta 61 8   Flauto Primo 61                 Manuale II – 61 notes, enclosed (3" pressure) 8   Violono Primo 61 8   Flauto Lontano 61 8   Viola d'Amore 61 8   Oboe di Caccia 61 8   Voce Angelica (TC) 49   Tremolo             Echo Organ (playable from Manuale I) – 61 notes (3½" pressure) 8   Pastorita 61 4   Flauto d'Amore 61 8   Violino 61   Serafieno Dolce (5 ranks) 275 8   Violino Distante 61 8   Voce Umana (in sep. box) 61 8   Violino Distante Celeste 61   Tremolo         Pedale – 30 notes (3" pressure) 16   Contra Basso 30 8   Flauto Grande 30             Percussions (playable from Manuales I and II) 8   Arpa Grande – 49 notes 8   Campanetta – 20 notes             Couplers     Manuale I to Manuale II 8' 4'           Manuale I to Pedale           Manuale II to Pedale                   Combination Pistons     Manuals I and II: Piano, Mezzo, Forte             Pedal Movements     Manuale I to Pedal reversing   Balanced Swell Pedal, Manuale II     Balanced Swell Pedale, Manuale I   Balanced Crescendo Pedal             Sources:      Gray, Christopher.
