Art Deco was influenced by the rich people in Paris, France. It was a way of design that had such sleek lines, geometric shapes, and modernism. It was also heavily influenced by the architectural movement. They thought that since it was the 20th century, it was better to have tasteful modern rooftops and buildings and so they implemented it. Art Deco is still around now, and you may not notice it but it is used fairly often. Take The Great Gatsby movie poster for example. The movie was made in 2013 but depicts the higher class of the 1920s and represents Art Deco perfectly. Artists now contribute to Art Deco by using as a source of inspiration for jewelry, furniture, and architecture. They fulfill a societal need by using the art movement in the right way. I think that Art Deco is a sophisticated art movement. The clean lines and shapes make it seem like it could be from the minimalism area but the neutral colors and interesting shapes tell a whole different story. Art Deco is everywhere but we just don't tend to see it.
|Pivolo Aperitif Aux Vins De France (1924) A.M Cassandre|
The poster Pivolo Aperitif Aux Vins De France made by A.M Cassandre was made to communicate the art at the time. This poster that was made for advertising liqueur, I would say that this poster depicts that very well. I think that the artist who made this poster was hoping to communicate the sleekness and wealthiness of time. I think that a single artist can persuade someone's opinion through their art. I think that because it's something that they feel. Persuading someone without words is hard but artists do it. They don't just slap paint on a canvas, they feel their art work. In my opinion art has been aided and hindered by the impact of technology. The reason that I think it has been aided is because there have been more forms of art. There is now animation, video game design, drawings through photoshop, and much much more. There are now more platforms where artists can express themselves. However while I think that it has been aided I think that art has definitely been hindered by technology. More people can see art through phones and computers, which is a good thing, but a lot of people don't feel the need to go to museums or an art exhibit. Going to those things is seeing the painting up close and really seeing how the artist felt at the time.
