The antiques of the twentieth century are not strictly speaking new creations but rather a synthesis of artistic movements of previous centuries. We can distinguish three main movements in the 20th century: the Art Nouveau which is inspired by the characteristics of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the 17th century. The Art Deco movement, which from 1910 onwards reinvented all the arts and domains of its time by offering more refined, geometric, and symmetrical forms, and the use of new and prestigious materials: Bakelite, glass, leather, inlaid wood, or even ceramics. Finally, the Mid-Century Modern movement, born from modernist movements such as the Bauhaus, between the end of the 1930s and the 1940s, is adept at the adage less is more and favors functionality over form.
