Art Deco Masters of Design
Although modernism had been on the rise since the early years of the 20th century, it wasn’t until the Paris exposition of 1925 that the art deco movement became firmly rooted in the collective consciousness of the design world. In this course, we will examine how exhibitions in the United States and Europe ignited a race among designers, manufacturers, and retailers to introduce this new modern aesthetic to the marketplace. This course covers the theories, trends, and individual styles of art deco furniture and decorative arts in France, the United States, Italy, Scandinavia, Germany, and Austria. Learn to discern key differences among designs from each of these countries.
