Back in print after an absence of several years, the revised edition of Victor Arwas' magnificent Art Deco offers a broad insight into the elements of this distinctive decorative style. Arwas discusses the work of Art Deco's leading French exponents -- Ruhlmann, Puiforcat, Erte, Dunand, Fouquet, Cassandre, Boucheron, Icart, and Lalique, to name but a few -- as he traces the evolution of the style from its first appearance at the famed 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris, from which it took its name.The author's extensive research in many private collections has enabled him to share a privileged view of objects of superb quality. Profusely illustrated chapters treat furniture, metalwork, silver, enamel and lacquer, jewelry, binding, glass, and ceramics. A special section provides biographies of 140 artists.
