Beginning with an exploration of the ideas and influences that contributed to the exuberant new style of the 1920s, this illustrated survey covers the two areas in which Art Deco triumphed: fashion and advertising. It looks at the work of artists such as Tamara de Lempica, Erte, Rene Lalique and Georges Barbier in fashion, and AM Cassandre and Paul Colin in advertising, but also describes the media in which they worked and the social context of their extraordinary graphics.
