Louis Icart, in his renewed popularity, has become the current symbol of the Art Deco period, for he captured the Parisian art world during the 1920s and 30s. Icart's light-hearted etchings, impressionistic oil paintings and erotic watercolors became sought-after treasures both in France and in America.In keeping with the present Art Deco revival and the interest in art of the period between the two world wars, this is a complete, extensively researched study of the life and works of Icart.A rich sampling of the artist's etchings is presented with detailed descriptions of his engraving techniques; representative oil paintings show the development of his style as well as the forces that influenced him. A generous selection from his watercolors, illustrated books, lithographs, and erotica is included.
