In the years between the wars, many sculptors produced works that were dubbed Art Deco, in styles ranging from Parisian geometric to a jazzier, streamlined American aesthetic. Looking closer at this motley assortment of artists, Alastair Duncan notes that some were drawn to the avant-garde, others to monumental or commercial productions. This substantial overview contains 1,000 illustrations, representing works by Constantin Brancusi, Joseph Csaky, and Francisco Salamone, while also tracing the movement's influence on the Oscar statuette, the eagle gargoyle of the Chrysler Building, and Brazil's iconic Christ the Redeemer.
