Art deco exhibition opens at Princeton University Library
Posted October 19, 2000; 05:02 p.m.
One of Art Deco's most vivid legacies, the printmaking technique known as pochoir, is the subject of an exhibition running through April 8, 2001 in the Leonard L. Milberg Gallery for the Graphic Arts at Princeton University's Firestone Library.
Entitled "Art Deco Paris: 1900-1925," the exhibition captures not only a little known art form but the sensuous spirit of affluent society in the first quarter of the 20th century.
The approximately 100 original color prints in "Art Deco Paris" document the uninhibited era that gave us jazz, the tango, high fashion, and modern art.
The exhibition is open to the public without charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, noon to 5 p.m. on weekends, and until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays. For additional information concerning the exhibition or to order a catalog, contact the Princeton University Library at (609) 258-5049.
