Art Deco, daring and almost defiant in its optimism, reflected the spirit of a restless time. Bursting forth in the midst of the Roaring Twenties, an age when there seemed to be no limits, this new art form was both elegant and modern. Cincinnati is fortunate to have three stunning examples of this unique style: the sophisticated Hilton Netherland Plaza hotel, the overwhelming Cincinnati Times-Star Building, and the Union Terminal. Beyond these giants, the Greater Cincinnati region is studded with many other breathtaking examples of Art Deco, from a water tower decorated with Christmas lights to stunning neighborhood theaters and apartment buildings to mythological creatures guarding a Masonic temple in northern Kentucky. There is no doubt that Art Deco is alive and well in Cincinnati, so grab a hip flask of bathtub gin, put on some Glenn Miller, and explore the elegance and history of Cincinnati Art Deco.

This book presents a pictorial record of the fabrics which clothed the smart women and furnished the stylish interiors of Europe and America during the age of the Ballets Russes and jazz. The Paris 1925 Exhibition brought the richly exotic designs of Paul Poiret and Raoul Dufy to world-wide attention and the fabrics pictured here trace the Art Deco style as it evolves from its initial vibrant blossoming to a starker, more geometric look. This was a time when abstract decoration came into its own by focusing attention on pattern and ornament, as artists and designers looked afresh at the conventions of pictorial representation, and felt free to innovate with dazzling results. More than a hundred colour photographs provide a rich survey of the work of designers such as Robert Bonfils, Ruth Reeves and Marion Dorn. The V&A's collection of Art Deco textiles encompasses luxury silks, handblock printed pieces and functional man-made synthetics, and this overview features outstanding French, American and British examples from 1910-1939. Published to coincide with the Art Deco 1910-1939 exhibition, this volume is a valuable addition to the series of books illustrating the V&A's world-renowned collection of textiles, providing an essential resource for students and collectors, and an indispensable general introduction to a particularly lively and popular period of textile design.

Munich's Academy of Fine Arts, founded in 1808, became one of the most important institutions In Europe for training artists in the second half of the 19th century. The Academy attracted students from across Europe, and the United States. This volume examines the ?Munich school, ? its development and influence, the migration of its style and the effect art students have on their surroundings. Existing studies of American painters in Munich focus on leading representatives from the peak of the movement in the early 1870s and 1880s, when the realism of the returning artists' paintings caused something of a sensation in the American art world, up to the 1930?s. This complex phenomenon must be investigated in its entirety, taking into account the development of styles and genres over half a century, experienced by more than 420 American students, and also by a number of American artists who studied elsewhere in town.
