9782080135940: Designed for delight: Alternative aspects of twentieth-century decorative arts

From Dale Chihuly's dazzling creations in glass to Frank Gehry's paper furniture, and from René Lalique's exquisite gold pendant to Salvador Dalí's sofa designed to look like Mae West's lips, the decorative arts were utterly transformed by 20th-century artists. With seven substantial essays-including Witold Rybczynski's assessment of why we love ornamentation so much-and more than 250 color and black and white images, this exhibition catalogue traces how Dada, surrealism, and pop art made their mark on our clothing, furnishings, and tableware. Other featured artists include Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, Isamu Noguchi, Ettore Sottsass, Gio Ponti, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Beth Levine.
