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.

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."
