"Art Deco" offers a broad insight into the splendour of this most lavish of decorative styles, as seen in the work of its leading French exponents. Their elegant creations are brought together in this profusely illustrated volume. This new edition has been extensively revised, replacing more than 100 black and white illustrations with colour and including many additional colour images, as well as revised contents with the latest information in the biographical section and revised captions and index. The author's intimate knowledge of many private collections from around the world enables him to share a privileged insight into the finest handcraftsmanship of the time. Superbly illustrated with separate chapters on the 1925 Exposition, furniture, metalwork, silver, dinanderie, enamel, laquer, jewellery, tabletterie, chryselephantine statuettes and salon bronzes sculpture, paintings, posters, graphics, book illustations, bookbinding, glass, ceramics, important art deco themes are also discussed. In addition there is a section of updated biographies of more than 120 artists, plus a bibliography and an index. Victor Arwas is one of the leading authorities on and a collector of the decorative arts from 1880 to the present. He regularly exhibits and promotes both fine and applied arts at his Editions Graphiques Gallery in London, and is the author of numerous books on the period, including Glass; Art Nouveau to Art Deco the standard work on the subject and the forthcoming Art Deco Sculpture.
