Art Deco

Art Deco was a movement in decorative arts[?] and architecture, deriving its name from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925. It was a major style in Europe and the US during the 1930s. The term Art Deco was apparently not coined until the 1960s, and its practitioners were not working as a coherent community of stylists. It is considered to be eclectic, and influenced by a variety of different art forms, including ancient egyptian, and also later influenced by manufacturing and streamlining techniques arising from consumerism and mass production.
