Art deco

"This ... volume salutes everything art deco--from historically significant art and design through to the present day. ... This book draws our attention back to the birth of art deco--a period between two ... world wars when industrialization was flourishing, interest in archaeology was peaking, and movements such as Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Modernism were turning the art world on its head. ... Author Norbert Wolf traces the chronology of the art deco style by looking at the politics and culture of Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, and the artistic movements that paralleled its popularity. He follows art deco's influence in Europe and its immigration to the Americas and Asia. ... this wide-ranging volume looks beyond the era of art deco's origination to the present day. Pointing to the numerous revivals and contemporary echoes in painting and even literature, this beautiful volume demonstrates that art deco is alive and well today--often in forms where we least expect it."--Provided by publisher.
