EXCERPT, ART DECO:
Art Deco was a visual arts design movement. It first cropped up in France just before WWI began (1914). It continued to flourish internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. After World War II (1945), it finally lost popularity. It expressed glamour, pleasure, and escape. It mirrored the newly mechanized world yet also drew upon both classical European design and avant-garde art. It was egalitarian by embracing all art forms. It was not snobbish about what kind of art was “better.” So fine art, sculpture, architecture, crafts, textiles, and so forth were all on the same level playing field.

During the Depression, the movies showed sumptuously decorated apartments and gorgeously garbed film stars. This was how the public was exposed to the art deco style. A small percentage of people, the well to-do, were the ones who owned the actual art deco pieces. That is true today as well since they are sold as valuable antiques.

Art Deco was adopted the most in architecture, interior design, poster art, furniture, jewelry, textiles, fashion and industrial design.It loved technology. It followed rectilinear forms. It preferred symmetry to asymmetry. It respected the new machines, new materials and mass production. It was not concerned with the natural world and organic forms.

EXCERPT: Erté
Romain de Tirtoff, 1892-1990, was a Russian-born French artist and designer. He was and is known by the pseudonym Erté, from the French pronunciation of his initials. He used an assumed name so as not to embarrass his father, who had expected him to follow the family line of work: high ranking naval officers.

Erté was a multi talented 20th-century artist and designer. He is best remembered for his illustrations of beautiful, stylish women which appeared on the most fashionable magazine covers. His “women” were an ideal of the Art Deco era. His popularity continues through to today as posters of these works have remained very popular.
