CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A burst of creative energy in the fields of architecture, design, and fashion
characterized the years between the two World Wars. Shaping new styles of
buildings and furnishings, redefining contemporary dress, and giving visual
form to avant-garde performing arts, architects and designers forged a
still-influential modern aesthetic. The era's most creative figures rarely
worked in isolation, preferring instead to participate in international
dialogues that crossed national boundaries and linked capital cities in
collaborative artistic enterprise.
No two cities engaged in a more fertile conversation than Paris and New York.
The interchange between them was never simple, however, comprising in equal
measure admiration and envy, respect and rivalry, as artists and designers in
each city interpreted and incorporated principles of Art Deco, Cubism, the
International Style, Neo-Romanticism, and Surrealism into their own practices.
