Art deco by Victor Arwas( Book )

59 editions published between 1957 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 2,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art Deco was a major decorative style of the 1920s - the perfect expression of the extravagance of Paris during that decade. Renowned for its opulence and exclusiveness, Art Deco embraced every area of the decorative arts, including furniture, jewelry, painting and graphics, bookbinding, glass, and ceramics, and was the last coherent decorative style to emerge from Europe during this century. The 1925 Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Moderne, from which the style took its name, united the work of the finest French artists in a dazzling display of luxury. Its creators were primarily painters and sculptors who employed highly skilled craftsmen to execute their designs in rare and exotic materials such as figured woods, precious tones and metals, glass and ivory, favoring strong and vibrant colors. This book offers a broad insight into the splendor of this most lavish of decorative styles, as seen in the work of its leading French exponents. Their elegant creations are brought together in this handsome and profusely illustrated volume, which includes much material not previously published. The author's intimate knowledge of many private collections around the world enables him to share a privileged insight into the finest hand-craftsmanship of the time. Also discussed are important Art Deco themes, including the animalier tradition and the cult of the beautiful sophisticated woman. In addition there is a special section of biographies of more than 120 artists

Alphonse Mucha by Sarah Mucha( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The name of Alphonse Mucha is inextricably linked with the evolution of Art Nouveau. Born in rural Moravia in 1860, Mucha found fame in Paris when a chance commission for a poster for the actress Sarah Benhardt led to the creation of his first poster image, Gismonda. 'Le style Mucha' was launched and Mucha's posters, with their sinuous lines, pastel colours and decorative motifs, were to become fin-de-siecle icons." "Mucha believed that art influenced all aspects of human life, and his message of peace and harmony links beauty to a moral goodness. This idealistic philosophy, implicit in his decorative works, is explicit in his later creations - historical paintings, allegorical and symbolist scenes. This book introduces this as yet undiscovered aspect of Mucha's work, as well as reproducing Mucha's best-loved images - all in magnificent colour."--Jacket
