Art Deco embracing animals

 

Art Deco successfully integrated the multitude of fascinating design innovations of its time. The mobile perspectives of abstract cubism were subtly merged into the designs but with more symmetrical aspects. The visions of futurism and modernism, inspired by the possibilities of the Machine Age were embraced in its design and choice of materials, while the simpler, functional ideals of Constructivism, Die Stijl and the Bauhaus disciplines were introduced. The dynamism and movement of the 20‘s Jazz Age and the Industrial Age were also prominent elements. The Bauhaus belief that mass production could live in harmony with the artistic spirit of individuality fitted nicely with the mass production utilised during the Art Deco era and the streamlined forms adapted well to the production methods.
The shift away from the Gothic, Baroque and Classical idioms, which began with Art Nouveau at the turn of the 19th century, were taken to the next level. The ethereal nympths in lush organic nature landscapes surrounded by bats, butterflies, dragons and other fantasy creatures morphed into modern, elegant, fashionable ladies of affluence, accompanied by all breeds of domesticated animals, especially dogs, but even including the likes of panthers and gazelles. Lean looking Greyhounds and Dobermans were a popular choice.The demands of marketing led to a depiction of sleekness, sophistication and order. This was reinforced by the symmetrical designs that overtook the asymmetry of Art Nouveau and the rectilinear lines becoming as prevalent as the curvilinear  ones.  Interestingly, the nudity of the Art Nouveau era survived , but took on a more liberated context in its expression. The diversity of animals featured in the unique Art Deco designs is one of the endearing aspects of this era.
