A beautifully illustrated and encyclopaedic review of the finest Art Deco sculpture from Europe, North America and beyond. With over 800 illustrations.
This ground-breaking book is the most comprehensive illustrated work on Art Deco sculpture available. Featuring approximately 800 illustrations and authoritative text, it is indispensable for everyone interested in this artistic style.
Spanning the 1920s and 30s, the book’s wonderful images demonstrate a wide range of works and influences, from the sunbursts, maidens, biches (does) and floral abstractions of Parisian geometric designs to the crisp, angular patterns of the Jazz Age aesthetic.
The sculptures are presented in three categories: work by avant-garde artists such as Csaky and Pompon; commercial pieces commissioned for the 1920s’ domestic market; and architectural and monumental sculpture from Western and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, North America and beyond. The book also includes 15 extended profiles of the most important artists and short biographies of all the principal artists and manufacturers.
