jazz music, jazzy style Jazz Age

The estimable and industrious Mr Stephen Stratford has reminded me that I have not posted much recently. 

What follows is the greatest essay about Art Deco ever written. It was not written by me.You can read the original here. You can read my opinions of this ghastly nonsense here.

Architecture Art Deco

A name derived from the art deco Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, though the term is not used until the end of 1960. Art Deco influenced by many different cultures, especially in pre-World War I in Europe. Movement occurred at the same time, and in response to technological advances and developments sisoal from the early 20th century.

Art Deco said, including new terminology at the time, was first introduced in 1966 in a catalog published by the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris at the time the exhibition is being held under the theme "Les années 25". The exhibition was aimed at reviewing the international exhibition "l'Internationale des Arts Décoratifs Expositioan et Industriels Modernes" held in 1925 in Paris. Since then the name of Art Deco is used to name the art when it was popular and modern. The emergence of the terminology in some of the articles are increasingly making a name Art Deco exist. Art Deco has gained a place in the art world with the publication of the book "Art Deco" by Bevis Hillier in America in 1969.

The term Art Deco evolved during his appearance in 1925 but did not receive wider usage until 1960. art deco style considered as an eclectic style of the view that modern decor influenced by a variety of sources, for example:
• Early work of Wiener Werkstätte architect; functional industrial design, with roots in the late nineteenth century.
• The art of "primitive" Africa, Egypt, or Aztec Mexico, most are designed with style cube.
• Preliminary work and thoughts of the Weimar Bauhaus stage involves the appointment of himself in it.
• carvings and ancient Greek style ceramics getting a little closer to the design of "ancient period"
• The fractionated, crystalline of decorative cabbage and futuristic
• Fauve, the color palette
• Establish an annoying of Neoklasiklasik spur the formation of a radical style of art deco style: Boullée, Schinkel
• Art deco is often associated with jazz music, jazzy style Jazz Age
• Motives of animals and tropical foliage forms; ziggurats; crystal; "sunbursts"; motif fountain tailored mode
• Art deco style also affects the appearance of women, which is flexible athletic style of "modern" woman; hair cropped year marks the modern girl's l920
• Year of engine technology and radio transmitters which are found

Ornamen and symbol art deco

Paris is the center of the art of art deco design, epitomized in furniture by Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, which we know as an expert designer of the best art deco style, and also Jean-Jacques Rateau, the firm memounyai Sue et Mare, screen Eileen Gray, wrought iron Edgar Brandt, metal and lacquer factory Jean Dunand, the glass Rene Lalique and Maurice Marinot, jewelery items and clocks by Cartier. All represent the art deco style.

Art Deco architecture in addition to receiving historical ornaments, this style also received the influence of the emerging architecture of the time. Modern architectural movement that is growing at the time the Bauhaus, De Stijl, Dutch Expressionism, International Style, Rationalism, Romanticism and Neoclassicism Scandinavian, Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, Jugendstil and the Viennese Secession. They influence the formations of Art Deco architecture and provide modern touches. Modern at the time defined by "dared to be different and new, more attractive than others and are not ancient" all of which is manifested by a striking selection of colors, unusual proportions, the new material and decoration.

Since the number of countries that apply this style to Art Deco to grow rapidly, it is no easy definition of a style that got popular back in the 60's. Any country that receives the Art Deco style to develop it themselves, the local touch to Art Deco in a place different from the Art Deco going elsewhere. But in general they have the same passion that use traditional ornaments or historical, so the style of Art Deco is a style that has local content.

Although initially an Art Deco style that prioritizes local traditional trappings, but he was open to something new, this openness is reflected in the use of new materials and new techniques, not infrequently they do merge material, so that their work is almost always innovative and experimental.

The development of Art Deco is not free from the influence of contemporary circumstances, at that time in Europe is ongoing industrial revolution, the public was fascinated by the discoveries and technologies rapidly advancing. These characters describe the pace of technology embodied into the design in the form of curved lines and zig-zag.

The arch is shown that the expression of motion, modern technology and a sense of optimism. People often dubbed the arch with the "Ocean Liner Style" this refers to the form of cruise ships at that time the man's work to be proud of, so the formation of the vessel, a curved shape used as an expression kemoderenan.
In accordance with its influence, Art Deco is characterized by the material such as aluminum, stainless steel, lacquer, wood, sharkskin (shagreen), and zebraskin. Namely the use of bold shapes, twist and shape of the curve (not the same as the sinuous curves of art nouveau), chevron patterns and sunburst motifs. Much of this ubiquitous motif-for example, sunburst motifs used in the context of the varied with examples of this motif often digunaka in the ladies shoe, a radiator grille, the hall of the Radio Music City Hall and the spire of the Chrysler building.

The art deco style evolved during the 1920's and 1930's

Art Deco slowly disappeared from the west after a number of buildings constructed in art deco style at the time and start building ridiculed by critics as too flashy style and elegance are false. This style was later shortened by the hardness of World War II. In colonial countries such as India, this style became a gateway to modern outlook and remains in use in 1960. A resurgence of interest in Art Deco came with graphic design in 1980, where his association with film noir and the 1930 appeal to its use in ads for jewelry and fashion goods.

This is Roogalator. You probably won't have heard of them. You probably were not born then. I was, and I bought this single in 1977. I once was cool.
