Following the publication of "Italian Ceramic Art," Skira presents a compilation devoted primarily to the modern decorative arts, that will offer a highly extensive and versatile anthology of writings, accompanied by technical and in-depth captions, and a scientifically documented, yet concise and absorbing essay. The collection is organized chronologically starting with the fabrics conceived by the artists of the Secessions Movements in Germany in the 1900s, such as Moser, Hoffman, and Klimt. This volume then takes an in-depth look at subsequent artists and periods such as Art Nouveau; the fabrics of Deco and Novecento design; European and American production in the 1950s, which show the influence from informal artistic culture; and the experiences of Pop Art, Op Art and Kinetic Art, including their contemporary successes. This volume includes biographies of the designers and main manufacturers, a glossary of technical terms, a thematic bibliography, and an index of names that will prove highly useful for specialists, collectors, and those who simply have an interest in art history.
