Art Deco | The Roots of Modernism

The New York Public Library has the largest Art and Architecture collection in the country. It is free and accessible to the public. To celebrate it, the library posted a lovely, short video at ArtBabble featuring some of the material in the Art Deco collection. For Deco fans, there is a quick look at the works created through the pochoir technique and the work of a true renaissance woman, Sonia Delaunay.

Curator of the Arts and Architecture Collection, Paula Baxter, provides the commentary. Here's the link.
