Born in Paris in 1925, Art Deco became the main artistic style of visual arts, architecture and design during the 1920s and 1930s. It influenced the making of buildings, furniture, jewelry, fashion, cars, trains, ocean liners, and everyday objects such as radios and vacuum cleaners. With its streamlined, sleek, geometric, and modern shapes it represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. This class will offer a panorama of Art Deco including its cinematographic aspects with scenes from movies such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) and Rudolph Valentino’s Cobra (1925).
