about

Art Deco Complete is the last word in Art Deco, the most glamorous decorative arts style, and the one that shaped popular ideas of modern luxury. It covers furniture and interior decoration, sculpture, paintings, graphics, posters and bookbinding, glass, ceramics, lighting, textiles, metal work, and jewelry. It includes the work of all of the important Art Deco designers, from high-style French furniture makers to the creators of the popular "Streamline Moderne" style. And it is, in the spirit of Art Deco, a lavish and attractive book, as well as being authoritative and thorough. This 544-page volume includes more than 1,000 color images of classic Art Deco objects and spaces.
Its author is the colorful and experienced Alastair Duncan, who was for many years the expert who ran the twentieth-century decorative arts department at Christie's in New York. Duncan is the author of many well-known books on Art Deco and Art Nouveau. This book will stand as his monument to Art Deco.
Alastair Duncan's work as an officer and consultant at Christie's New York from 1977-1990 has made him a leading authority on Art Deco and Art Nouveau decorative arts. This is his thirty-third book on the decorative arts including Abrams's Masterworks of Louis Comfort Tiffany and American Art Deco. He lives in New York City.
