" This book showcases and puts into historical context a host of sculpted works created in the 1920s and 1930s in the decorative vernacular defined loosely today as "Art Deco.”


The works shown demonstrate a broad range of styles and influences: from the chevrons, sunbursts, maidens, fountains, floral abstractions, and ubiquitous biche (doe) of the Parisian geometric style to the crisp, angular patterns of the zig-zag, jazz-age, streamlined aesthetic to which architects were drawn towards 1930.

The author organizes his subject into three main categories : the first features work by avant-garde sculptors (Csaky, Janniot, Pompon, and others) ; the second shows commercial sculpture, comprising mainly large-edition statuary, commissioned by éditeurs d’art and foundries from sculptors as decorative works for the burgeoning 1920s domestic market ; while a final, third category covers architectural and monumental sculpture from around the world.

With artists’ biographies, details of manufacturers, a full glossary, and a thematic index, this volume is the essential and authoritative guide for all those interested in the Art Deco style. "


Une somme à l'iconographie abondante - plus de 800 reproductions et documents -, in-texte et à pleine page, indispensable à tout amateur de sculpture Art Déco.
La Ruche de Montparnasse et le Musée des Colonies, avec le sculpteur Alfred Auguste Janniot, sont largement traités.

Signalons des chapitres consacrés aux statuettes des Oscar et des Emmy, ainsi qu'aux bouchons de radiateurs et autres mascottes de l'automobile.
