A Week-End Wonderweb 05-03 (Art Déco)

In chronological terms, Art Déco was the next major art movement to take the world by storm after Art Nouveau; spanning post-WWI to WWII, with its aerodynamic, fluid, streamlined cruise-ship lines borrowed by architecture (from American flagship skyscrapers to Le Corbusier's modernist structures, via countless other references) and rolled out to the Applied and Graphic Arts, enchanting towns, cities, interiors and art lovers with a visually-pleasing design rhythm destined to become no less than a quintessential 20th century classic.
