Art Deco - Art of the Jazz Age [more details]
Lecturer: Adrian Sumner
Location: DESY Auditorium
Art Deco, the Period Style of the 1920s and 30s, is ravishing, amazingly various, and endlessly fascinating. This lecture, illustrated with fabulous colour slides, looks at the planes and liners, the jewellery, textiles and frocks, the paintings, posters, pottery, bakelite and iceglass, as well as the remarkable personalities (from Clarice Cliff to Josephine Baker by way of Le Corbusier) that made the Twenties roar and the Thirties a headlong dash into World War Two.
