Art Deco is a decorative style popular in the 1920s and 1930s. Sometimes Art Deco is referred to as a collage of styles. In 1925 in Paris, the International Exposition des Arts Decoratifs was held. It was required that any entries made at the exposition had to be of the new modern design. Styles from the past or styles which reflected the past were not allowed. Popular motifs which have become representative of the Art Deco style are abstract designs, geometric lines, dramatic use of colors, stylized floral motifs, shimmery colors, and motifs denoting speed or balance.
Art Deco styles are strongly represented in bronze sculpture of the Art Deco time period. These bronze expressions in style continue to be quite popular today. The Four Winds Collection at Classicbronze.com makes available to the public a number of marvelous reproduction Art Deco sculptures. Highly regarded sculptors of the Art Deco Period are D.H. Chiparus, J.P.F. Preiss, Edgar Brandt, and Phillipe.
Many art deco subjects were taken from the ballet, the theater, and Egyptian themes. Art Deco sculptures reflect speed and grace and balance.
