Taschen's Decorative Art 30s & 40s

A source book edited by Charlotte & Peter Fiell

The 30s and 40s saw the transition from hard-edged Modernism to its softer, more organic descendant. The Modern Movement continued with force through the 1930s, championed by Le Corbusier and Richard Neutra, and in time Modernism's stark minimalism and use of industrial materials became widely accepted. By the 40s, however, its original coolness was being replaced by warmer and more human characteristics, as in the work of Charles Eames and Alvar Aalto. Taschen's Decorative Art 30s & 40s is an essential reference for anyone interested in this period.
