About This Item

I have already released series of art-themed travel bugs based on works I have seen in person.  I will continue the series mostly including works I simply admire.  There will also be famous works or works by famous artists that I otherwise do not particularly care for, but they are….well,..famous.  My disdain extends to most Modern Art and a good amount from the Pop Art movement.  However, I do have a special fondness for Art Deco.

Art Deco or just Deco, is an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France just before World War I and began flourishing internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and early 1940s before its popularity waned after World War II.  It took its name, short for Arts Décoratifs, from the International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris in 1925.  It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials.  The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation.

Deco emerged from the interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming the culture of the western world. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.  It was a style that usually (but not always) ran more to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear.  During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress.

As the various travel bugs is this series will show, the Art Deco style manifested itself in all expressions of the culture of the period; furniture, home décor, luxury items, fashion, architecture, industrial design and the arts (jewelry, posters, pottery, sculpture, painting).

GeoGlena and I found this travel bug at What-A-Nut! Near Alamagordo, New Mexico. It was waiting near a quite amazing monument. It was great to read about Art Deco in the travel bug's description page. I am a college student and I am taking Art Appreciation class right now so I can truly appreciate this travel bug! Retrieved it while on a Spring Break road trip to Texas from Colorado.
