The decade known as the Jazz Age was a time of growth and fortune, oppression and revolution. Spurred by innovation and the audacity of youth, architects, artists, musicians, filmmakers, and designers alike created unprecedented responses to the demand for a new American lifestyle; some looked back for inspiration, and others marched forward with ideas for a fresh vocabulary to voice the optimism of the day. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of full-color illustrations and featuring essays by two leading historians of decorative art and design, The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s reveals how designers established a new visual representation of modernity within the context of a changing world.  Catalogue to the exhibition The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s
