George Inness: Painting Instructor To Louis C. Tiffany

Since George Inness was a early art instructor to Louis Comfort Tiffany many antique collectors wonder just how much of an influence this great painter had on the stained glass panels that Tiffany went on to create. Inness was born in Newburg, New York in 1825 where he was fifth of thirteen children. His fine art paintings were highly influenced by the old masters and eventually he studied with French landscape painter Régis François Gignoux. Much of his early career was spent traveling to some of the greatest locations in Europe, which he captured in beautiful images that drew him much acclaim and many commissions.
