So inspired! I'm a huge fan of Alphonse Mucha and the Art Nouveau movement he popularized. Art Deco is about as close as you can get without actually being Art Nouveau. Both movements were decorative, without much in the way of political or social intentions (though the same can't be said for Mucha himself).
Art Deco took root around the turn of the 20th century and peaked in the 1920's. It took fluid Art Nouveau and sharpened it up with Cubism, Modernism and Futurism. What I like about the movement was that it was also influenced by Primitivism. The art of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Aztec Mexico was all incorporated into this elegant, dynamic, colorful movement. My favorite part of Art Deco is Egyptian Revivalism.
So, that's what I'd like to explore in my piece and I may use this cool little scarab I found on my own Egyptian adventure!
