This new addition to Prestel's successful "50s" series focuses on Art Deco, an artistic movement that originated in France after World War I and spread throughout Europe and America. Presented chronologically in full-page illustrations accompanied by explanatory texts, these fifty iconic examples demonstrate the variety of ways Art Deco was expressed. Included here are a soup tureen designed by Jean Puiforcat; Edward Steichen's portrait of Fred Astaire; a brass-framed mirror by Austrian Franz Hagenauer; a still from the Busby Berkeley film, Footlight; and a self-portrait by the Polish painter Tamara de Lempicka. Other examples include jewellery, architecture, posters and items used in everyday life. Opening with an authoritative overview of the Art Deco movement and including biographies of each of the artists, this is a compact and affordable reference work
