Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Back in print in an expanded edition after a decade's absence, this dazzling survey of Art Deco is arguably the most lavish and comprehensive monograph on the sleek style that was consecrated at the scandal-ridden 1925 Paris Exhibition, to which Arwas devotes the opening chapter. Rene Lalique, Paul Iribe, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Erte and Louis Icart helped define what was ``essentially a French movement'' in the opinion of Arwas, a London gallery owner. He traces Art Deco's flowering in furniture, metal, silver, jewelry, enamel, lacquer, figurines, bronzes, sculpture, painting, posters, graphics, book illustrations, bookbinding, glass and ceramics. The extraordinary objects shown in 437 plates (340 in color) are among the finest Art Deco creations ever made. Arwas knowledgeably delineates the impact of the style on artists ranging from the U.S. to Czechoslovakia, among them Georg Jensen, Robert Delaunay, Kees Van Dongen, Jacques Lipchitz, Eric Gill and Jacob Epstein. (Nov.)
Library Journal
This revised edition of the 1992 original delves deeper into the art deco movement and is profusely illustrated with 437 photos and plates. Arwas viewed many private collections when performing his research, and the text and illustrations cover everything from furniture to jewelry to vases to sculpture and paintings. One of the best books on the subject.
