WPT Talk 10th October 2019 Art Deco and the ‘Moderne’

The very different and iconic style that emerged after WW1; the Modern Movement or ‘moderne’ style, later known as ‘Art Deco’ was brought to prominence by the Paris Exposition of Decorative Art in 1925 and lasted approximately twenty years. It was based on classical and other styles, including Egyptian, Arts & Crafts, Chinoiserie, Art Nouveau, Jazz Age, Cubism, Aztec, and Futurism. It was a style which reflected the machine age, utilising period innovations, such as plastics, chrome and aluminium. Motifs were based on forms of nature: trees, flowers and insects.
