At the end of the war, French society underwent great transformations. This period was marked by a desire for renewal which would be expressed in Art Deco.
Art Deco is the name given to the « modern » style of the 20th century. He enjoyed worldwide influence during the interwar years and expressed himself in all areas of creation.
