Kurzbeschreibung

14. September 2009
Straddling two World Wars and the Great Depression, ushering in the Jazz Age and the era of the automobile and skyscraper, fomenting in the great cities of Europe and America and shaping everything from the Golden Gate Bridge to the humble desk lamp, the story of Art Deco is the story of our modern world. In this book, the most comprehensive account of the decorative arts of the Art Deco period ever assembled, Alastair Duncan celebrates the styles rich variety of form and its diverse international roots as the very factors that make it a perennial favourite of modern collectors and designers. Sumptuously illustrated and written by one of the worlds leading experts, "Art Deco Complete" will be the definitive work on the subject for many years to come.

Synopsis

The Art Deco style of the early 1930s can be seen as domesticated Cubism. As with cubist paintings, the elements of design were reduced to their minimal essence and applied to everyday items for public consumption. Here Bakelite plastic jewellery and boxes are studied as reflections of this style. The book is a visual garden of Deco design, with hundreds of items photographed in colour and described with their useful purposes, materials, and current values. Bakelite is collected because it is different and fun. This book is important because it demonstrates how the new Art Deco style provided the Depression-ridden world with colour and style in a form most people could afford.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Almost complete 4. Oktober 2009
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although the book is called Art Deco Complete you should know that the editorial is really focused on the European fine art aspects of this wonderfully exuberant style. It doesn't cover architecture or the way the style was used for commercial products. Having said that I found the book a fascinating overview of Deco. Duncan has written several books on the style and this huge volume probably has much taken from all of these.

The book is in two sections: Media and Masters with sections on: Furniture and Interiors; Sculpture; Paintings, Graphics, Posters, Bookbinding; Glass; Ceramics; Lighting; Silver, Metal, Lacquer, Enamel; Jewelry. The second part is an A-Z of Designers, Artists and Manufacturers. The last pages have reasonable bibliography, index and a couple of pages I found useful: a glossary of French technical terms.

Each of the sections in the first part (304 pages) is divided into the leading artists with large photos of their work. In fact the images (over a thousand with most in color) throughout the pages are something, I feel, that lifts the title above many other books on the subject. The four Chiparus figures on 108-109 just jump of the page, similarly the quite stunning bookbinding on 144-145 or the Puiforat clocks on 296 -297 will really hold your attention. The second part (212 pages) design index also presents large photos to go names. The index does broaden out to include some commercial creative folk like Breuer, Susie Cooper, Kem, Loewy, Rohde or Russel Wright.

Although the book is called Art Deco Complete you should know that the editorial is really focused on the European fine art aspects of this wonderfully exuberant style. It doesn't cover architecture or the way the style was used for commercial products. Having said that I found the book a fascinating overview of Deco. Duncan has written several books on the style and this huge volume probably has much taken from all of these. His book American Art Deco covers the style in the US where he does include architecture, graphics and commercial products.

The book is in two sections, Media and Masters with sections on: Furniture and Interiors; Sculpture; Paintings, Graphics, Posters, Bookbinding; Glass; Ceramics; Lighting; Silver, Metal, Lacquer, Enamel; Jewelry. The second part is an A-Z of Designers, Artists and Manufacturers. The last pages have reasonable bibliography, index and a couple of pages I found useful: a glossary of French technical terms.

Each of the sections in the first part (304 pages) is divided into the leading artists with large photos of their work. In fact the images (over a thousand with most in color) throughout the pages are something, I feel, that lifts the title above many other books on the subject. The four Chiparus figures on 108-109 just jump of the page, similarly the quite stunning bookbinding on 144-145 or the Puiforat clocks on 296 -297 will really hold your attention. The second part design index (212 pages) also has large photos to go with the names. The index does broaden out to include some commercial creative folk like Breuer, Kem, Loewy, Rohde or Russel Wright.

Author Duncan has managed to write what might end up as the standard work on the fine art aspects of Art Deco though I still think the word Complete in the title is rather misleading, it is after all a decorative art style and its influence traveled much further than the other 'ism' styles from the early part of the last century. Art Deco 1910-1939 by Benton and Wood is a book that justifiably could have included the word Complete in its title. Own both books and you'll have the complete Deco works.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not So Complete! 3. April 2010
Von Avotas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Art Deco Complete: The Definitive Guide to the Decorative Arts of the 1920s and 1930s is overflowing with wonderful pictures, and a represents a wealth of accurate digestible knowledge for anyone interested in the period. However the title "Complete" is a misnomer, and book completely omits of exterior architecture. I can't tell you why the author left out some of the most iconic and easily identifiable Art Deco structures worldwide, but the exclusion is a noticeable even to the most casual reader. Still, overall, this is a wonderful book and will provide many hours of enjoyment. 4/5 Stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen encyclopedic and humungous art deco overview 19. Februar 2010
Von Ivor E. Zetler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I would like to echo the laudatory comments of the other reviewers in respect to this massive tome. The prospective reader will find all they might want to know about the art deco design movement. The thousand or so well chosen color illustrations cover many of the aspects of art deco in excellently reproduced color photographs. There is so much information and a multitude of images that this book cannot be comfortably digested in one sitting.

There are a number of worthwhile publications coveing this subject; "Art Deco 1910-1939" is one of the better efforts. With its expertly written commentary and fantastic images, this encyclopedic volume puts its competitors in the shade. A must buy for all art deco fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen an excelent reference to the Art Deco 17. April 2013
Von Roman Kosoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Art Deco Complete is a gorgeously published book covering multiple aspects of Art Deco development. The illustrations are large, numerous and clear, and supporting text is very informative and relatively concise. The organization is sometimes a little bit confusing, but it is almost inevitable for an encyclopedic text which is trying to be not be too dry.
Effectively, the book consists of two parts: first part is set up in chapters according to the media (ie. furniture, or sculpture, etc) with a relatively short introductory text per chapter, followed by more detailed information focusing on the best known, and most spectacular, artists working in that area. Second section is a more encyclopedic section with listing, and short description and some illustrations, of other people of significance in the area of Art Deco. This book is not the MOST complete list of all artists and their work as relevant to Art Deco field, but that is where books focusing specifically on Art Deco Furniture, Art Deco jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Art Deco bookbinding, and so on come in to play (Alastair Duncan has authored enough of the specialized books, so the omissions in the Art Deco Complete are not due to his ignorance or bias. This edition is already so heavy - you do need a table to read the book as it is too heavy to hold it any other way for a long time - that adding additional info will have to result in reducing the quality of illustrations, which, to me, are the strongest point of the book.
I have a number of other Art Deco books, by Alastair Duncan and other authors, and this one is the best of them all, both in the informative and inspirational aspects.
P.S. I had a chance to read only the Abrams edition, and do not know how does it compare to the Thames and Hudson edition.
