Havana Deco

Front Cover
W. W. Norton & Company, 2007 - Architecture - 175 pages

An unparalleled tour of the Art Deco-style architecture, interiors, decoration, and art objects of Havana.

Cuban artists, open to the winds of change and to outside influences, filtered the movement born in Paris through the dazzling beauty of Caribbean nature and made the art their own. Exteriors and interior spaces, the graphic artists who spearheaded Art Deco's popularity, monumental sculpture, and the contributions of painters are explored here in rich detail. 300 color illustrations.
