Freud and Tiffany, New York and Vienna
By Elizabeth Ann Danto
At a time when Vienna was to the Western world what New York is today, Louise Tiffany was reading Freud’s newly-published Interpretation of Dreams in German. Twenty years later, Dorothy, the daughter of Louise and Louis Comfort Tiffany, would take her own four children from New York to Vienna for safety and psychoanalysis and for respite from her complicated marriage to Robert Burlingham at its end. They arrived in 1925.
