One week remains to see a fabulous exhibition at the Cite de l’architecture et patrimoine museum in Paris: 1925 Quand L’Art Deco Seduit le Monde.
Housed in the Palais de Chaillot, itself an Art Deco masterpiece, the exhibition focuses on the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts of 1925 and its impact across the world. It is the first French retrospective dedicated to Art Deco since 1975.
Organized thematically, the exhibit seeks to tell the story of how the Art Deco style succeeded so well and with such an impact on the aesthetics of the world: in architecture, painting, sculpture, furniture, fashion, and decorative art.
Just a few of the artists and architects showcased include the sculptor Francois Pompon, fashion designer Paul Poiret, interior designer Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann, architect Henri Sauvage, and many more.
