Baroque Between the WarsAlternative Style in the Arts, 1918-1939

Author(s): Jane Stevenson


Baroque between the Wars offers a new take on modernism and highlights how, during the interwar years, baroque style enabled a whole new way of being modern, one which was actively subversive of the tenets of modernism and practised by the people modernism habitually defined as not worth listening to, particularly women and homosexuals. Covering fashion, photography, literature, film, architecture, and ballet, the volume provides a fascinating account ofhow some of the icons of the twenties and thirties- Cecil Beaton, Stephan Tennant, Rex Whistler, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, the Sitwells, the Bright Young Things, Ottoline Morell, and Djuna Barnes, to namea few- influenced the style and culture of the interwar period.
