Art Deco was the era of flappers, fashion, music, and politics at a time when the stock market crashed in 1929 followed by many years of The Great Depression. I love the geometric lines and angles of the designs – very different from the fluid lines of the previous Art Nouveau period (I adore this period also). The Art Deco Era became a recognized movement with the Exposition International des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes that was held in Paris in 1925. The exposition was largely dedicated to the jewelry arts.
Tamara de Lempicka was one of the foremost painters of the Art Deco period. Her canvas portraits of the famous socialites of Europe is believed to have created the style now known as Art Deco.
