辽宁科学技术出版社, 2008 - Architecture - 254 pages
Art Deco is an art movement between neo-classicism and modernism. It is named after an exhibition held in Paris in 1925, the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et Industrials modernes, which meant 'super luxury' at that time. With distinct geometric shapes, intense, bright colours that stand out and decorative look, art deco has shaken the world with striking visual attack and lively rhythm since the moment of its birth. Also, it is characterized by the clean lines, streamlining and symmetry. Art Deco designers favoured geometric and linear lines to create works, which were coated with colourful decoration to form strong contrast. Art has no boundaries, soon this new art trend came all the way from Europe to China and settled down in Shanghai. A swath of skyscrapers emerged in this oriental metropolis, there were banks, hotels or theatres which helped to melt art deco into the life of the people. Here in this book, we trace the origin, evolution and prime of art deco with typical and classical works and it will help you to fully enjoy the vibrant and versatile Shanghai art deco.
