Located in the Espace Landowski in Boulogne-Billancourt, a near western suburb of Paris, this unsual museum is specialized in artistic and industrial objects of the 1930s. The Thirties was a famous decade  for their technical, industrial, social, architectural and artistic innovations and Boulogne-Billancourt welcame during that decade a lot of famous “name” industrialists (Renault, Voisins, Blériot for cars and planes..),  filmmakers or actors (Renoir, Pagnol, Abel Gance, Marcel Carmé..),   architects (Le Corbusier, Mallet-Stevens…).

Come and discover with an instructor provided by the museum more than 1000 sculptures, 800 paintings, thousands of drawings but also furniture, ceramics, of these intensely creative Thirties.

About the Instructor: Holding a PhD in British and American Studies from the Sorbonne, Catherine Estivalezes was involved for years in a foundation for promoting contemporary art, before returning to Art History studies. She has several years of experience in guiding, including districts, monuments, museums, and temporary exhibitions.
