A modern movement of the 1920'sand 30's that came as a complete backlash to the soft, feminine organic shapes of the Nouveau style. Whereas Nouveau celebrated the shapes of flowers and the female curves, Deco celebrated the stream-lines masculine speed of the modern world. It is characterized by sharp, angular shapes and the glorification of the machine-age. Though it drew it's inspiration from many eclectic sources, the style is distinctive with its utter lack of grace. Some of its influences include Italian Futurism, Constructivism, Cubism and early 20th century Avant-garde painting. It is a harsh, definitive style that mixed several decorative styles eclectically and debuted in the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Decoratifs in Paris. It's most prominent names are the painter Tamara de Lempicka,the architect Willian van Allen and the glass artist Rene Lalique.
