One thing led to the next last night and I found myself looking at Art Nouveau doors. Art Nouveau was 1880-1910. Sometimes grouped into the Art Deco Style, the Art Deco style started in 1925 to 1939. Art Nouveau is organic and not generally symmetrical. The whiplash curve is a common feature. Art Deco is very geometrical. And the last picture, not quite a door but an entrance, is of a Paris Metro entrance. While in Paris with a couple of friends one looking at the entrance, which are now protected historical monuments, and says “That looks old and should be torn down”. Sigh! For more Art Nouveau see my previous blog post.
I’m seeing Art Deco here.
