The Forbes Gallery which was located on Fifth Avenue between 12th and 13th St. in Greenwich Village went dark in November 2014. Then Forbes sold the building to NYU. I want to know: what happened to the art in the galleries?
This anonymous person works in New York City and has quite an amazing story about the Normandie panels. (Check out my home page for the Dupas panels here.) I look forward to hearing and meeting this collector soon. For now, take a look at his panel which he is considering selling:
Check back soon because I expect to have higher quality photographs for this.
I have been so excited to receive so many emails about the Normandie Panels by Jean Dupas which many of you can see I have become slightly obsessed with.
This one came from Robert H. of Peekskill, NY I believe these are a part of his personal collection which include 5 that are framed and 4 more that are not.
Featuring composite graphics, a recent Sotheby’s sale, NY Times on the Forbes acquisition in 1981, and an art dealer friend.

WOW!! I’m excited to share these beautiful photos from the website of Schindler Metalworks: Installation of SS Normandie Verre Églomisé Collection. It features a custom installation of twelve panels in Houston, Texas.
Thanks to reader Richard A. for alerting me to these. Do you have pictures or know whereabouts of additional Normandia panels? Email me!
