A sampling of overseas luxury has come to the Savoy Automobile Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, with the opening of a new temporary exhibit—Rolling Sculptures: European Art Deco.

Art Deco became a worldwide movement focused on the future, modernizing industrial innovations by embracing a style of elegance and sophistication, and impacted nearly every visual medium.

Occurring mainly between the two world wars, “the fluidity and grace of Art Deco design complemented the aerodynamic structure of automobiles, typically resulting in two-door coupes and roadsters with sweeping fender lines, long, exaggerated hoods, intricate chrome detailing, prominent headlights and tapered trunks that reflect the glamour and luxury of the iconic movement,” Savoy officials stated.
