Best known for his iridescent glass windows and object d'art, Tiffany was also a painter of oils and watercolors. He depicted Luminist landscapes and Orientalist subjects, while during the late 1870s, he rendered a number of urban images unusual in their era, including Duane Street (Brooklyn Museum). Study of Young Boy is among these works, demonstrating a realist approach that anticipates the art of the Ashcan School. The crouched boy's well-fitting clothes and leather shoes suggest that while he belongs to a city environment, he is not among New York City's street children.
