The Decorative Twenties

The Decorative Twenties

by PhilippeGarner (Editor), Martin Battersby (Author)


This reference work is a revision of the original text and describes the kaleidoscopic range of styles within the Twenties, a decade of creativity which saw development in book production, graphics, fashion, jewellery, glassware, ceramics, textile and wallpaper design. The author describes Art Deco and analyzes in detail the work of the great artists and designers in France, England and America - Paul Poiret, Emile-Jaques Ruhlmann, Rene Lalique, Jena Dunand, Syrie Maugham, Elsie de Wolfe - and the movements and technical innovations that influenced them. Martin Battersby was internationally recognized as a trompe l'oeil painter and mural decorator and his acquisitions of Art Nouveau and Art Deco form the basis of the collection now at the Brighton Museum. The editor, Philippe Garner, is author of Emile Galle (1976) and is the editor of The Phaidon Encyclopedia of Decorative Arts, 1890-1940 (1978). He provides a brief biography of Battersby in the text.
