The early twentieth century saw some of the most distinctive periods in the history of decorative art, such as the Edwardian period in Britain, the tail end of the Belle Époque in France and the emergence of the Art Nouveau and the Art Deco, and the final decades of purely traditional art in China.

Soon after, artists were faced with the horrors of the Second World War and the ramifications of the Cold War after that.
