The 1920s and 1930s were a time of great social and cultural upheaval,
as well as a period of immense creativity in all artistic fields. The
decorative arts experienced a boom that was to shape the lifestyles of
a generation, and French artists and designers found themselves at the
center of these developments. Whether following the elitist decorative
trends of Ruhlmann and Süe, or the more egalitarian, functionalist
movement led by Le Corbusier, the worlds of interior decoration and
fashion went through radical changes that were both influenced by and
reflected in the textiles of the day.
This is an invitation to
discover the spectacular world of French Art Deco textiles. Hundreds of
full-color photographs bring to life the age when craftsmanship and
industry worked side by side: Lyons silk and the first artificial
fibers, carved wooden printing blocks and huge multiple-cylinder rotary
presses, indigo and madder and aniline and alizarin dyes, tradition and
progress. By turns sumptuous or minimalist, featuring extravagant
floral patterns or simple arrangements of shapes and colors, timelessly
classic or celebrating the most recent triumphs of contemporary life,
these fabrics will provide endless inspiration to designers and
collectors. 316 color illustrations.
