Paris Recorded: The Thérèse Bonney Collection


More than 140 photographs by the photojournalist Thérèse Bonney are on display in this exhibition documenting the evolution of design and decoration in Paris, from the watershed Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in 1925 through the early 1930s. These photographs, selected from the Museum's archives, capture the great changes in the Parisian streetscape due to innovative, modernist facades and art deco influences in window displays at stores such as Galeries Lafayette and Bon Marché.
