Art Deco Artists and Art Deco Designers

Art Deco Artists and Art Deco Designers | 20th century antiques and collectables | Scoop.it

Art Deco Artists - A reference of artists and architectural and decorative arts designers that typify the art deco style... from Andre Leon Arbus to Rene Lalique, Frank Lloyd Wright and Joseph Hoffman.

 

Art Deco epitomises style and sophistication and some of the 20th century's most significant artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger, Sonia Delaunay and Wassily Kandinsky, produced work in the art deco style, as did many designers of furnishings, textiles, jewellery, and advertising.

 

Favourites include Charles-Eduard Jeanneret (Le Corbusier), who as a decorator became well known in the Parisian art world, and worked with other great designers such as Andre Groult and Paul Poiret.

 

Frank Lloyd Wright is another excellent art deco designer. He was instrumental in fashioning a specifically American tradition of modern decoration upon which American Art Deco was built.

 

If you love Art Deco here are the artists and designers you want to collect ...

Before becoming a synonym for cinema, celluloid was never quite a star attraction. But able to imitate expensive materials like ivory, tortoiseshell, and linen, the first successful synthetic plastic played a subtle role in shaping consumer culture.

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts | The First Moderns: Art Nouveau, from Nature to Abstraction

Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts | The First Moderns: Art Nouveau, from Nature to Abstraction | 20th century antiques and collectables | Scoop.it

Norwich | 04.02.12 - 02.12.12

"The First Moderns is the first in a series of spectacular displays dedicated to the history of Modernism.

Treating Art Nouveau as the first modern design movement, the exhibition explores the progression of the style from natural to more abstract, geometric forms.

Drawing on the Sainsbury Centre’s permanent collections, The First Moderns highlights the role of artists and designers of the Art Nouveau style in the rise of Modernism. The display offers an opportunity to see the Centre’s Anderson Collection in a new way, comparing the naturalistic vitality of René Lalique’s jewellery and glass by Emile Gallé with the controlled style of Louis Majorelle and the geometric forms of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Josef Hoffmann."
