I'm not sure I would agree that the International Style is a European style, although it is considered to have largely originated in Europe.

The example in the U.S. are extensive, including not only works by Neutra, but also works by van der Rohe, Gropuis, Johnson, and many others.

However, I generally stay away from the term, which derives from a particular New York art-historical clique, carrying more art-political baggage than clarity of definition.

At, we start with Modern, and then subdivide by Early, Expressionist, Deconstructivist, High-Tech, and so on.
