What is Art Deco?
What is Art Deco? Although the question seems simple, historians can not decide upon a single, definitive answer. The time period, aesthetic principles, motifs, and just about everything else that typically defines a style or movement, are all open to interpretation when it comes to defining Art Deco. To help understand the style, ADSNY asks experts from the fields of architecture, design, and history to answer the question, without relying on images.
