Art Deco belongs to a world of luxury and decadence, the golden age of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The very term conjures up a multitude of romantic images; huge ocean liners gliding effortlessly across moonlit seas; the sound of clinking cocktail glasses with a raucous jazz band emanating from a sumptuously decorated ballroom. Above all this era saw a new freedom that was being enjoyed during the interwar years and the geometry and clean line of the Art Deco art form served to express and visualise the enigmatic vitality of the period.
