This talk traces the fascinating history of ocean liners, from the transatlantic cruises of the Roaring Twenties, to the worldwide repercussions they had on decorative arts and architecture, exploring their widespread technical, aesthetic and cultural impact. Brigitte Saby will discuss the sumptuousness and prestige of the immediately recognizable style that inspired dreams of escapism and luxury around the globe; dreams modelled on the unmistakeable refinement and quality of decoration and furnishing which so marked the history of architecture and design.
