Classsical Beauty

Art Déco has no unambiguously relatable stylistic features like classical styles as for example Art Nouveau. Art Déco rather shows the awakening of the classical modern age. The connection of elegance, the preciousness of materials, the strength of colors and the sensuality of the theme were in the forefront. The name speaks for itself and clearly focuses on decorative design intentions. Flat depictions of organic and flower motives were typical for this period. Partially similar to Art Nouveau, the superfluous was seen as the necessary.

Also other functionalist art movements were developed at the same time all over Europe: like the Esprit Nouveau in France, De Stijl in Holland or the Bauhaus style in Germany. On this occasion, there were quite interactions between the different styles, indeed, but basically they were classified as a countermovement.
