The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s

by Stephen Harrison (Author)

Capturing the dynamic pulse of the era’s jazz music, this lavishly illustrated publication explores American taste and style during the golden age of the 1920s. Following the destructive years of the First World War, this flourishing decade marked a rebirth of aesthetic innovation cultivated extensively by American talent and patronage. Due to an influx of European émigrés to the United States and American enthusiasm for travelling to Europe’s cultural capitals, a reciprocal wave of experimental attitudes began travelling back and forth across the Atlantic, forming a creative vocabulary that mirrored the ecstatic spirit of the times.

The Jazz Age showcases design, art, architecture, and technology developments during the ’20s and early ’30s. It emphasises the United States as a vital part of the emerging Art Deco luxury goods marketplace. Featuring hundreds of full-colour illustrations and essays by two leading historians of decorative arts, this comprehensive catalogue shows how America and the rest of the world worked to establish a new visual representation of modernity.
