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 (but not always) rather than the curvilinear.  During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress.  If you are a fan of the Golden Age of Movies (30s, 40s and very early 50s), you have seen a lot of Art Deco interiors.  The modern cineplexes often try to incorporate some of the former style today, just look at the light fixtures above above the aisles.

As the travel bugs is this series will show, the Art Deco style manifested itself in all expressions of the culture of the period; furniture, interior design, home décor, luxury items, fashion, architecture, industrial design and the arts (jewelry, posters, pottery, sculpture, painting).  The designs on the cigarette holders on this TB are good examples.
