Music Through The Eye 2005
It's De-Lovely
Art Deco Travel Posters of the 1920s-30s
Mon, Aug 1, 6:00 - 8:30 pm
Sheffer Recital Hall, The Shedd Institute

Speaker: Jim Ralph,
Executive Director, The Shedd Institute

This year we feature 2 posters created by Parisian illustrator Roger Broders, a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, in the late 1920s. This talk will discuss the role of the Art Déco travel posters in creating the aesthetic "feel" of the 1920s and '30s with examples from Broders and others, and comment on the more general role of popular art forms–film, sheet music, posters, advertisements–in shaping how Americans saw themselves (and saw the "upper class") during the heyday of Cole Porter’s work.
