1920 Vintage picture frames come out from an artistic movement born in France in the beginning of the 20th century called Art Deco. It was a miscellany of styles of various artistic currents. The main forms and elements that make up the Art Deco movement come from Cubism and other pictorial styles. They were mixed up with decorative elements of the Louis Philippe style and Louis XVI furniture. In addiction these styles already felt the influence of the exotic oriental art of countries like China, Japan, and India.
The Art Deco was born with the intention of giving greater importance to the craftsmen of decorations of furnishing. The original name of this artistic movement was, Arts décoratifs. That name in French means decorative arts. In conclusion in 1901 the SAD (Society of decorative artists) was founded, giving the decorators the same importance as the other types of artists.
