The Art Deco style was all-pervasive during the 1920s and 1930s, affecting the decorative arts, fine arts and fashion. This is the first book specifically to examine Art Deco painting and to define it as a genre. The author analyses the characteristics of the style, period and history of the movement, explaining its relationship to Classicism, the Symbolists, the Precisionists, photography and Cubism. French, American, Russian, British and Italian painters are all represented here, including Tamara de Lempicka, Jean Dupas and Glyn Philpot.
