Who loves ya, baby?
I think I actually found that piece in one of the old modernism threads on here.
Yeah it really does, I say that every time I see it - I think that's not uncommon with art deco. Reminds me of places in, I dunno, Folkestone or Leigh-on-Sea or something looking over the sea, I always imagine that the guys who live in those are old ships captains or something who have retired to a pseudo-boat by the coast and have one of those old brass telescopes on their balcony looking out to sea.That one looks like someone turned a cruise ship into a building.
I mean whatever the common ideas of it are - like my understanding, which is vague and low resolution. "Popular" probably wasn't the word for it, think "common" is better. I was just wondering how much the passing/pedestrian understanding, such as mine, keeps intact the message/intention of the modernists. I mean, I hear "modernist architecture" and I think Bauhaus, so I'm probably a bit above average there, but not much. Still low resolution in the grand scheme, which is my point.i dont know what the popular understanding is
To be honest this is going beyond the little I know about the subject, but is "Art Moderne" the same thing as international modern[e/ism]?This is kinda what I thought... but if you look it up its the other way round. Art deco started in France and Arte Moderne in the US.
