SS Normandie: the Grand Salon

RIBA105439
Dupas, Jean (1882-1964)
NOTES: The Grand Salon may have been the ship's most palatial room; it was initially compared to the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Below the 31-foot-tall ceiling were four glass-relief murals, each more than 20 feet tall and about 30 feet wide, made up of about a hundred individual panels. They depicted the ancient gods cavorting at sea, with tall sailing ships in the background. The French architect Roger-Henri Expert was in charge of the overall decorative scheme and the painter Jean Dupas designed the murals.
