Art Deco: Ironwork and Sculpture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Treasure is brought back to life in this fantastic volume of decorative ironwork and sculpture. Fantastic photography explores the work of artisans of the burgeoning Moderne Art movement in Paris. Selected from folio volumes published in the mid-1920s to inspire fellow artists on the cutting edge, the more than 500 exciting pieces shared in this compendium have proven themselves timeless in their classic lines and exquisite detailing. This is a must-have volume for artisans of the forge, sculpture studios, and all fans of Art Deco-era decorative arts.

Book News Annotation:

Architects, designers, home owners, craftspeople, artists, and collectors will delight in page after page of b&w photos selected from folio volumes published in the mid-1920s depicting splendid examples of Art Deco design. The format is oversize (9.5x12.25). There is no text beyond a one-page introduction, and the photos are not captioned or otherwise described. Arrangement is in sections on gates & doors; wall decoration & room dividers; staircases & railings; light fixtures; facades, awnings, & outdoor windows; furniture, fireplaces, vases, & mirrors; and stonework & woodwork relief on interior walls and columns. Cook is an antiques dealer with a passion for wrought iron and woodwork; Skinner is a writer and editor specializing in design.
