Art Deco is a distinctive modernist style that took its name from the Exposition Internationale des Art Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925. The popularity of art deco during the 1920s and 1930s influenced modernist designers in many fields. With the economic depression years of the 1930s, the thriftier and less extravagant styles came to the forefront. This book examines architecture, furniture, visual arts, and the useful arts that were created during the reign of art deco style.
