What is art deco?

It is an artistic style that arose from the Art Noveau whose birth is located around the year 1910 in Paris. Art Deco was a groundbreaking artistic movement for the time due to the lack of closed models and its ease of adaptation to all kinds of themes and styles. In a way, it was a different art form due to its cult to quality, its incorporation of modern lifestyles, the celebration of the new, youthful sensuality and also of mass consumption.

This form of art became known to the world during the Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925, surprising attendees for its heterogeneity and eclecticism. On the one hand, Art Deco was harshly criticized for its groundbreaking and daring character, but on the other hand it also became a mass phenomenon that spread to big cities like New York, Paris, Russia….

This new art style was quickly embraced by 1920s, 30s and 40s Hollywood as a movement evoking luxury and splendor. Many of the works that can be found in the United States have themes inspired by male athletes, modern women, living nature and rhythmic jazz, an iconography based on the liberation of forms, excesses and glamour. >
