STATUETTES OF THE ART DECO PERIOD. Alberto Shayo. ACC Art Books, Antique Collectors' Club Ltd, Woodbridge, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 304 pp. with 441 ills. (398 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781851498246 In English.
Publisher's description: It is a vast world one enters when writing on the statuettes of the Art Deco era: both in terms of the number of artists that contributed to it, and the number of figures they created. This book studies the influences that shaped these artists' work - namely, the growth of the Ballets Russes under the aegis of Sergei Diaghilev; the fascination in all things Egyptian that followed the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1924; and the Music Hall, with all of its venues, its stars and its glamor. Paris was a magnet for aspiring artists. An unrivaled destination for free-spending tourists, its popularity dwelt in the city's inexpensiveness, considering the absence of the dollar and the falling value of the franc. A thorough look at its artists and their work can only emerge from long investigation.
