From the Middle Ages to contemporary times, decorative art can be defined by the artistic materials, designs and objects used in both architecture and inferior design. Similar to many art forms, decorative art continues to evolve, originating with pieces as simple as a chair, noted for its utility, to purely ornamental objects, celebrated for their aesthetic beauty.
Decorative Art aims to eulogise these often undervalued objects by giving praise to all mediums of decorative art throughout the centuries. Never originally considered as fine art, their artistic potential was not acknowledged until the 20th century, when industrial production replaced artisanal creation.
The age, authenticity and above all the uniqueness of these precious objects have now become the new standards of quality and beauty found in decorative art. Join us in discovering the evolution of decorative art through this enticing survey of major masterpieces throughout time.
