ART DECO 1924 - 1940
Art Deco is an international decorative arts movement, most
popular between the years 1924 - 1940. It is a style of
drawing, that relies on bold designs, clear lines, vibrant colours
and patterns. Geometric shapes and intense colour schemes
are prominent. Art Deco’s main characteristics are derived from
the various painting styles of the early twentieth century,
ranging from Cubism to Italian Futurism. Art Deco is usually
associated to the architecture of the 1930s and speed and luxury.
Recently it has seen a revival.
Art Deco had an extensive influence on architecture in the 1930s
and 1940s. Many buildings on the coast of Florida have an Art
Deco exterior, tending to be symmetrical with distinctive windows
and colours.

colours and displays the fashion and architecture of the 1930s.
