Decorative & Applied Arts (Page 2)

150 Years Of Decorative And Applied Arts have brought forth a plethora of artistic movements and styles that have shaped the way we perceive and appreciate art today. From the ornate designs of the Art Nouveau movement to the sleek lines of Art Deco, decorative art has been a reflection of society’s values and tastes. Applied art, on the other hand, has focused on the functionality and practicality of design, with examples ranging from furniture to fashion.

Throughout history, artists have used various mediums to express their creativity, including ceramics, glassware, textiles, and metalwork. The influence of decorative and applied art can be seen in many aspects of our daily lives, from the architecture of buildings to the products we use. As we continue to evolve as a society, so too will our appreciation for these forms of art.
