One of the things to love about Art Deco is the way that it flirts with the edges of so many other art and design movements in-play at the beginning of the 20th century, and then somehow wraps them all up in cellophane… Nothing quite conveys this like the graphical works of George Barbier, and Giovanni Meschini, the master of the pouchoir postcard.

These situational illustrations had to be a major influence on the art director for The Great Gatsby film. This collection was assembled with the notion of multiple influences in mind, and in it we tried to present a selection that references many of the significant movements. Influences of the Arts and Crafts movement, especially in America and Great Britain can be seen in the wood-carvings and bas-relief sculpture; in contributions from German sources you can see elements of the nascent Expressionist movement—both in the edgy cabaret line drawings and the aggressive, hard-edge logos and commercial graphics. The line between Art Nouveau and Art Deco has always been bit blurry to my eyes—perhaps you can see what I mean in the many highly-colorful, geometric and floral pattern pieces. The collection is comprised of 227 JPG and TIF image files; many of the images also come in an EPS vector format.
