If you've read Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland, then you've learned that this novel is set in the New York studio of Louis Comfort Tiffany, an artist who debuted his stunning stained glass in the 1890s. If you haven't read it, this story revolves around Clara Driscoll, head of the women's workshop at the Tiffany Studios. She struggles for recognition as an artist and tries to balance her personal life against the strict "no married women" policy at her work. Set against a Gilded Age backdrop, this is a sumptuous imagining of a Clara Driscoll, real life woman, leader of the Tiffany Girls, and a brilliant glass artist in her own right. If you enjoy reading fictional biographies or stories about artists of all kinds, May We Suggest has the following titles for you:

The Lady and The Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier

The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant

The Painted Kiss by Elizabeth Hickey

Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach
