About Henriette Arcelin's work

Henriette Arcelin is best known for producing design work. Since the early 20th century, the word “design” has been used to refer to objects valued for the aesthetic qualities they convey. It was often used in correlation with the decorative-arts, but with the societal shifts of the 20th and 21st century, the term “design” expanded to a wider field, and now includes areas such as industrial design, graphic design and fashion design. Some of the most significant design movements include The Arts and Crafts movements and the Bauhaus, which triumphed in unifying artistic creativity with the manufacturing of objects.

Historical Context of France

France has been an important nation in the development of modernism. Throughout the 19th century, France fostered the foundations of what is currently known as the avant-garde, with movements such as Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Art Nouveau, led by world renowned artists. In the first half of the 20th century, Paris was a crucial intellectual and cultural centre, originating cutting-edge movements such as Cubism, Fauvism, Dadaism and Surrealism, amongst others. These movements flourished at the beginning of the century, in the period immediately preceding the Second World War. Dominant French artistic figures from the beginning of the century include Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque (Spanish national who settled in France) Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Le Corbusier amongst many of others.
