Admired by all at the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Arts, Art Deco continued to spread until the end of the 1930s, alongside the modernist and cubist movements. Many of the painters of the inter-war period, such as Boutet de Montvel, Courmès, La Patelière, Souverbie and Despiau, strove to give realism a new face, in tune with the times.

Boulogne-Billancourt was at the heart of this burgeoning creativity. Attracted by the affordable land, major industrialists such as Renault and Dassault, the Studios de Boulogne film studios and artists such as Paul Landowski, Marc Chagall and Juan Gris settled in the fledgling town.

As a privileged witness to this teeming period, the Museum of the 1930s offers a unique insight into a period that is still little-known, in contrast to a modernism that has for too long been confined to cubism, abstraction and conceptual art.

This book by heritage curator Emmanuel Bréon is devoted to the works kept by the museum: several hundred masterpieces in fields as varied as painting, sculpture (by the Martel brothers, Jouve, Janniot and Bernard), the decorative arts (with exceptional ensembles by Ruhlmann, Leleu, Follot, Sue and Mare, Printz, Herbst, Sognot and Mallet-Stevens), the graphic arts and architecture.
