Derived from various avant-garde painting styles of the early twentieth century, the Art Deco movement comprised a mix of Cubism, abstraction, distortion, and simplification. Geometric shapes and vibrant colors were popular elements of this sophisticated style of ornamentation that found expression in architecture and the applied arts.
This collection of sensuous, bold and exotic motifs, reprinted from a rare 1910 portfolio, contains a wealth of arresting Art Deco wallpaper patterns. 160 striking, royalty-free designs--a must-have collection for designers and craftworkers--depict a breathtaking array of florals, geometrics, and abstract designs, all stunning in their presentation and elegant in their simplicity.
Republication of Kunstgwerbliche Schmuckformen Für Die Flache, published by Verlag Christian Stoll, Plauen, ca. 1910.
