Art movements from Abstract to Victorian

Art Deco obtained its name from the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs Industriels et Modernes, which was held in Paris to celebrate contemporary life. The movement concentrated on an assortment of modern and decorative artistic styles throughout the 1920s and 1930s, following a discipline introduced by the numerous avant-garde paintings of the early twentieth century.
