Book Review: Decorative Arts by Jean-Michel Frank – Between 1932 and 1940, J.M. Frank completely reinvented the vocabulary of decorative arts. Working in Paris, New York and South America, Frank was inspired by neo-classicism, abstract art and primitive art. He sought to create an original style for the thirties, a style whose elegance gained him the patronage of an elite clientele. J.M. Frank’s name has come to serve as a reference for collectors. The decorative principles he created are still today the basis for the minimalist style that dominates contemporary decor.
