Art Deco captured the mood of 1920s and 1930s modernism, an age of jazz and streamlined machinery, with designs that are colorful, geometric, and filled with an intense rhythm. Watch as curators from The New York Public Library showcase Art Deco prints from the Art & Architecture Division’s collections.



  1. It was interesting to see about Art Deco ART. I mostly know about Art Deco as an architectural movement.

    In my hometown of Havana there are many art deco buildings from the city's Golden Age…. long past.

  2. @StoicTwo Like everything in America, Art Deco was borrowed, but they made a fantastic job of using it in some stunning buildings. America (via Wales) gave the world the brilliance of Frank Lloyd Wright,one of the worlds greatest architects.
