Art Deco and Cubism

Cubism and Art Deco


In our last article, we addressed the history of Art Deco and its origins.  This week we explore the relationship and influence Cubism would have on the Art Deco period.  

Cubism was not a long lasting movement but it would come to have a deep influence on the period now known as Art Deco.  Ending at the outbreak of World War I, Cubism was brought to a wider audience via Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso and their contemporaries.   At the Cezanne exhibition in Paris in 1907 and Picasso’s Demoiselles d’Avignon exhibition (also in 1907), Cubism’s seeds were planted.

Cezanne believed nature could be reduced to sculptural forms such as cylinders, spheres and cones and had developed a flat, two dimensional view of the landscape.  Time, space, and movement were now more important and artists wished to represent many different viewpoints of the same object at the same time.  This led to the two dimensional geometric style associated with the cubists.  This geometric style would trickle down to other artistic areas but can be seen with particular clarity in the striking jewelry of the day. 


Under the influence of Cubism jewelry became simpler; shapes became triangular, hexagonal and trapezoidal to go with modern furnishings and costumes.


The symmetrical and generally rectilinear style of Art Deco can be seen in dramatic miniature in the art of the jewelry making.


 Several of the Cubist artists, Picasso, Braque, Robert and Sonia Delaunay among others crossed over to the world of theater and designed sets for the Ballet Russes, which were enormously influential in the world of Art Deco Fashion and jewelry.
