The interim verdict: your preferences in art lie with Art Deco. Art Deco embraces the era of jazz and the Prohibition, these paintings can only be analyzed in the context of the fashion, design and architecture of the time. Much like the style of art nouveau, art deco is mostly decorative in its function, with no grave philosophy… to rely on. And yet it developed into one of the “big” styles and spread internationally. The style features the extravagance and luxury by means of rich and state-of-the-art materials and technologies, bright and saturated colours, exuberant ornaments, bold geometrical shapes and ethnic patterns. If combined with the respective interior design, the art deco paintings point to the nostalgia for the old times when the dandies and the It-girls lived fast and careless lives through the sounds of jazz and the gloriously illuminated sparkling vanues of polished restaurants and cafes. You can getter an insight into the art deco life watching the TV series of “Agatha Christie’s Poirot” and “Jeeves and Wooster” that fairly describe the mood and the style of the epoch.
