Enduringly popular style.
Geometric shapes, pure and dynamic: the Art Deco style (1919-1940) is characterised by its attractiveness and vivacity. Born from the impetus of French designers such as the architect Henri Sauvage, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Pierre Patou, designers André Vera, Louis Sue, André Mare and Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann, the couturier Paul Poiret or the sculptor François Pompon, it is the fruit of an overall vision from various artistic fields.
This exhibition is the first since 1975 to pay tribute to this aesthetic, which has united the world's designers. This benchmark retrospective addresses the International Exposition of 1925 and the global spread of this enduringly popular style. Initially, it examines the distinction between Art Nouveau and Art Deco, identifying both styles for the public.
