The themes that emerged from the Exhibition were 'Modernity', 'Technology' and 'Luxury & Leisure'. Although the Exhibition in Paris featured the works of French artists the Art Deco movement was an international one, alot of these inspirations came from other European countries, Egypt, India, East Asia, Latin America, South Africa, Australia, United States, Mexico and Cuba. The look of Art Deco is not always easy to describe, because it is a mix of styles, from this to that so no one can really pin point the true art Deco Style.
