The article presents information on artist Dan Dailey and the influence of art deco in his work. Art deco is an art movement from the 1920s and 1930s influenced by avant-garde painters and the cubism and futurism movements. It relies heavily on geometric shapes and intense color schemes and is inspired by the rise of industry and technology. The display, Good Grandees, is constructed of hand-blown glass and bronze. The display provides a great example of art deco.
