Tiffany Blues Reviews
Jenny Bell is a new artist, trying to escape a horrific past. When she is invited by Louis Comfort Tiffany to learn at his art institute, she takes the opportunity in the hopes of making a name for herself.
I was very interested in reading this book because I love historical fiction and I love art. I found the book to be slow at times and somewhat confusing. According to the summary, the book is about her time at this summer art institute, yet it takes forever for her to get there. Jenny seemed a ...more
Fall into the atmosphere created that speaks of the early twentieth century. Although at first blush, it appears to be a more innocent time, it was anything but for young Jenny. It’s now 1924 and Jenny has escaped her dark past, the pain, the lies, the murder, the debt she paid that she never owed.
A gifted artist, her work reflects her inner turmoil, her lack of color in her life, until an invitation to Louis Comfort Tiffany’s artist’s colony helps one trouble young woman open her heart to life, ...more

Even though I don't have a creative bone in my body, every once in awhile I end up reading a book that takes place in the art world. This particular historical fiction book is centered on Jenny Bell who is one of twelve artists invited to a prestigious artists' colony in the 1920s. Laurelton Hall was a real life home that Louis Comfort Tiffany, a design director at his family's Tiffany & Co., donated to his foundation for art students. However, most of the story and characters are products o ...more
Amazing and gripping. The story twists and turns as you relate to the main character. You feel her heartbreaking past, and cheer her on as she figures life out.
If you like historical fiction, especially the early Twentieth Century, this is a don't miss.
This is a beautiful book, it is written very descriptive and makes you feel and see the art. In many ways although it’s a mystery it could also be an artist canvas.
Tiffany Blues is my least favorite M.J. Rose novel to date but it's still well worth the read. Although historical fiction, it is based on the nonfiction Louis Comfort Tiffany and his prestigious artist colony that was housed at his New York estate: Laurelton Hall in the early 1900's. According to the author, all art history facts about the late Mr. Tiffany are true (and she did her research!) but all other characters were drafted from her imagination. In addition to historical fiction, this ...more
