Streamlined American/WPA Moderne Bookends.
In nineteen thirties’ America, streamlining was the most prominent feature of Art Deco fashions. The American/WPA Moderne art style was a subset of Art Deco. Here we have bookends showing a bust of a streamlined lady on a Deco geometric, stairstep base with a semi-classical face that belongs to American/WPA Moderne. (Click here to compare to the faces in our Post from June 3, 2014, entitled WPA Moderne Bookends.) The bookends are Frankart’s contribution to both styles at once.
