It’s in the classic tweed Coco Chanel suit, in Ruhlmann furniture, and in Josephine Baker’s slick ‘do. They’re reflections of the period from 1925 to 1940 that made New York and Paris the epicenters of style and design, and the exhibition Paris/New York: Design Fashion Culture explores the period’s surge of new buildings, films, and art on both sides of the Atlantic. This Art Deco and neo-romantic series features drawings, furnishings, decorative objects, costumes, photographs, posters, and film. Also, for all you Salvador DalÃ fans, check out the rare images like a photograph of the Dream of Venus pavilion designed by DalÃ for the 1939 World’s Fair; an illustration/advertisement of Hosiery by Bryan for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo; and a photograph of DalÃ arriving in New York on the Normandie.
