Art Deco is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France after World War I, flourishing internationally in the 1930s and 1940s before its popularity waned after World War II. It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation.

Among the best-known artists of that period were Demetre Chiparus, Ferdinand Preiss, Antoine Bourdelle and Joseph Csaky. Art Deco was a globally popular style and affected many areas of design. It was used widely in consumer products such as automobiles, furniture, cookware, china, textiles, jewelry, clocks, and electronic items such as radios, telephones, and jukeboxes. It also influenced architecture, interior design, industrial design, fashion, graphic arts, and cinema. During the 1930s Art Deco was used extensively for public works projects, railway stations, ocean liners (including the Île de France, Queen Mary, Normandie), movie palaces, and amusement parks.

Art Deco was influenced by Cubism and the Fauves and by the artists of Futurism and by the followers of functionalism. The artists whose work influenced the Art Deco, were Henri Matisse (1869 - 1954), Georges Braque (1882 - 1963), Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) and Umberto Boccioni (1882 - 1916). The center of the design movement was in Paris. A Paris exhibition gave this movement its name. The "Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes", which was initiated by French artists, called henceforth the style of the "Art Deco".
