French Description :
Buit in 1931 for the International Colonial Exhibition at the East limit of Paris, the Palais des Colonies (Palace of the Colonies) was, until a few weeks ago, a museum devoted to the African and Oceanian Arts.
It is now closed and the collections will be relocated in other French museums.
This book is an excellent historical and architectural guide to this building which gave also the occasion for numerous talentuous architects ans Art Deco artists the place to exprim themselves. Available at : Amazon.ca,
