Art Deco and Its Enduring Popularity

Written by Rosana Hart

Elegance and geometrical shapes are amongrepparttar hallmarks of many ofrepparttar 138032 art deco objects which are still popular today. The art deco movement was at its height duringrepparttar 138033 years between World War I and World War II, roughly 1920 to 1939. The style took its name fromrepparttar 138034 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, so "deco" is short for "decorative."

Art deco became widespread in architecture, interior design including furniture and dishes, clothing, jewelry, poster art, and practically any art form. It started in Europe, but was used even more inrepparttar 138035 United States.

It drew widely onrepparttar 138036 many forms of art fromrepparttar 138037 past: Oriental and Middle Eastern art (including Egyptian), Greek and Roman works, Mayan shapes and designs. But it was considered extremely modern and used many machine and automobile design elements like wheels and gears. Rooted in some ofrepparttar 138038 avant-garde painting styles ofrepparttar 138039 era, art deco is characterized by abstraction, distortion, and simplification. Very intense colors were common, as were geometric shapes.

Above all, art deco was a celebration of modern life, an elegant and sophisticated look which was available in many ways. There were luxurious items forrepparttar 138040 wealthy, and mass-produced items forrepparttar 138041 middle class. In architecture, there were theaters, restaurants, hotels, ocean liners, and even World's Fair exhibitions. It may seem bittersweet to us so much later, but it represented a joyous delight inrepparttar 138042 rise of commerce, technology, and speed.
