Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: The term “Art Deco” is derived form “arts decoratifs” – French for decorative arts. The term was used in the title of a major international design exhibition in Paris in 1925: Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Delayed for a decade because of the wartime emergency, this exhibit launched a major international movement, but nowhere more influential than Europe and the United States.
