Rate this:
One of the most fertile periods in American design, the years 1920 to 1945 witnessed many influences and styles. The influx of emigre artists, such as Eliel Saarinen, Josef Albers, Gertrud and Otto Natzler and Paul T. Frankl, with the landmark 1925 Art Deco exposition in Paris, the Bauhaus, and the World of Tomorrow exhibition at the 1939 New York World's Fair, all contributed to the shift from the handmade objects of the Arts and Crafts Movement to the streamlined, geometric forms of modernism.
