  5. Are Art Deco and Art Nouveau the same?
    Confusing the two is a common mistake.
    • What is the difference then?
      Art deco is a post WW1 style in architecture and furniture. Its climax was in the mid twenties. Art deco lines are more strict using only straight lines, 45 degrees; and square angles or circles. Art deco colors are more vivid inheriting from the "Fauves". The "haute couture", designing the XXth century woman style (more emancipated) is also an important feature of Art Deco. Some artists did want to give a sequel to Art Nouveau and its research in the decorative field trying to define a global suitable environnement for the XXth century man (and woman). What is sure is that the Art Nouveau shapes that made the Art Nouveau style are over. The Art Deco is really an international style where one can found isolated artists in Art Nouveau.
