Art Deco

I love Art Deco / J'aime l'Art Déco

Art Deco was a popular international art design movement from 1925 until 1939, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design, and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film.

At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional, and modern.

The movement was a mix of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative.

Art Deco experienced a decline in popularity during the late 30s and early 40s, and soon fell out of public favor. It experienced a resurgence with the popularization of graphic design in the 1980s. Art Deco had a profound influence on many later artistic movements, such as Memphis and Pop art.

De 1920 à 1939, et en réaction à l'Art nouveau d'avant la Première Guerre mondiale, l'Art déco fut un mouvement artistique extrêmement influent surtout dans l'architecture et le design, mais concerna en fait plus ou moins toutes les formes d'arts plastiques.
Le style Art déco tire son nom de l'Exposition internationale des Arts Décoratifs et industriels modernes qui se tint à Paris en 1925.
