Léger & Art Déco: Vision for the Next 100 Years
[Image: Fernand Léger, Woman at the Mirror, 1920, oil on canvas, 55.3 x 38.7 cm]
Ends in 13 days
Two major art currents emerged, mainly in Paris, with the dawn of the machine age roughly 100 years ago. Artist Fernand Léger who pursued pure form and architect Le Corbusier were proponents of Modernism, while the geometric designs of Art Deco that swept Europe at the time are reflected in the decorative art of craftsmen such as René Lalique. The different philosophies were expressed in architecture, monuments, and interior decoration projects presented at the 1925 International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts (Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes), also known as the Art Déco Exposition. In today’s world, the idea of coexistence with robots in the near future carries both expectation and apprehension. One hundred years ago, however, a mechanical age was envisioned with exhilaration and total excitement.
