During the 1920s and 30s, New York and Paris vied for supremacy in fashion, design, art and architecture. These 12 essays by leading French and American scholars explore the rivalry and mutual influence of the two cities in the heyday of Art Deco, and assess the role of key figures such as Josephine Baker, Salvador Dali, Paul Poiret and Helena Rubinstein. Stunningly illustrated with 250 photographs, posters and paintings, this elegant volume is as stylish as the era it celebrates.
