Art Deco Original Framed Photo from SS Normandie, Signed Jean Dunand

About

RETIREMENT SALE!!! EVERYTHING MUST GO - CHECK OUT OUR OTHER ITEMS. Jean Dunand (French 1877-1942) is still considered the finest decorative lacquer artist of all times. His elaborately beautiful images and installations define the French Art Deco movement. Durand was commissioned to provide lacquered wall panels for the French ocean liner, the SS Normandie. Considered the most glamorous ship of its' day, it launched in 1932. The panels Dunand created were of a masculine theme, showing athletes, horse training, fishing, and wine making. The works measured 20 feet high, and 27 feet wide. To accommodate the grand scale, Dunand had to dig trenches in his studio, and added hydraulic chains to raise and lower the works during the creation. We are offering three original 1930's photos of the works, beautifully framed and matted. The works were photographed in Dunand's Les Halles Paris studio by noted photographer Albin Salaun. Each photo has a hand written ink description, and signature by Jean Dunand, the artist. The works represented are La Peche (fishermen), Les Athletes, and La Conquete du Cheval (horse training). As the Normandie was destroyed by fire in 1942, the glory of these works were short lived. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a piece of design history! The listed price is for the one work, although the other two are available at an additional cost.
