Jean Dupas, Two Curved Verre Églomisé Panels, SS Normandie, France, circa 1934



In the 1930s, the French Line commissioned top artists and designers to create a floating showpiece for national culture and industrial might: the SS Normandie. This ship, the fastest of its day, was the last great expression in the history of French Art Deco and was a tribute to elegance and glamour. The first-class travelers in the Grand Salon were treated to lavish 20-foot-tall murals designed by painter Jean Dupas and executed by Jean-Charles Champigneulle using the reverse-painting and gilding technique of verre églomisé´. These two curved sections from the "Chariot of Thetis" mural. Another mural from the Grand Salon is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum.
