ART DECO NEW YORK
At the end of WW1, New York emerged as one of the world’s great cities. Manhattan found its expression in skyscrapers, apartment buildings, and movie palaces. From the late 1920s into the 40s, there was the explosion of exotic modern styles we now call Art Deco. This lecture explores the paintings, sculptures, murals and mosaics and their creators, and the influences behind this global movement.
