This decorative terra cotta tile designed
by Louis Sullivan will be sold as lot 3211 in Michaan’s October Arts and Crafts Auction.
The piece was acquired from Japan’s famed Garden Museum Collection, one of the finest
groupings of Tiffany masterworks ever assembled. Measuring a square 20 by 20 inches, Sullivan’s
architectural sensibilities can be seen throughout the ornate tile, from a master whom many revere
as the “father of modernism.” The decorative tile will be offered in the Main Gallery in
an over 330 lot sale at an auction estimate of $15,000-17,000.
