The Art Nouveau movement of the late 19th and early 20th century yielded some of the best free formed glass art ever made. The innovators of this art were the best from Europe and North America. These artist included Louis Comfort Tiffany, Arthur Nash, Frederick Carder, Martin Bach, Conrad Vahlsing, Victor Durand and others. Out of this group of artist came the main makers of great art glass, Tiffany Studios, Quezal, Steuben, Durand, Fostoria and Lustre Art. The lighting works were made in standard dimensions to fit most fixtures and lamps of the time as well as today's modern fixtures. The patterns, shapes and quality of the glass work of the vases and glass wears are seen in the lighting shades. Most makers made both glass wears and shades. Tiffany made a full line of leaded lamps and other decorative items and the other makers worked with other lamp makers to sell complete lamps or fixtures.
