Modernist design prior to World War II developed decorative as well as minimalist tendencies. Explain this development and compare ONE example of each manifestation of modernism from the period c.1900-1940. Make sure to explain why your examples qualify as modernist design and their relation to broader artistic movements in this period. How would you characterize the relation of modernist designers to ornament in this period? And why did one tendency ultimately prove more successful than the other? Please use only academic sources to reference, and use paraphrasing when needed. Footnotes should be used as well
