Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties
Edited by Teresa A. Carbone, Contribution by Bonnie Costello, Randall R. Griffey, Sarah M. Lowe and The Brooklyn Museum
About This Book
Accompanying a nationally touring exhibition, this critical history of American art of the 1920s provides a fresh perspective on the strikingly original modernist imagery of the Jazz Age. Youth and Beauty is the first wide-ranging look at American art during the period following the Great War and before the onset of the Great Depression. This richly illustrated volume captures a glimpse into American life during a decade when urbanization, industrialization, and mechanization were revolutionizing the United States.
