Art Deco: 50 Works of Art You Should Know

Originating in France after World War I, Art Deco quickly spread throughout Europe and America, and encompassed nearly every artistic medium from paintings and photography to furnishings and film. Art Deco: 50 Works of Art You Should Know is a beautifully designed and highly accessible overview of the movement and a must-have book for every art lover's library.

Fifty iconic examples of the Art Deco movement are presented chronologically in full-page spreads that are accompanied by explanatory texts and short biographies of the artists.

Included are a soup tureen designed by Jean Puiforcat, Edward Steichen's portrait of Fred Astaire, a brass-framed mirror by Austrian designer Franz Hagenauer, a still from the Busby Berkeley film Footlight, and Portrait of a Young Girl in a Green Dress, by the Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka, and many other examples of iconic jewelry, architecture, and posters.
