In 1925, 16 million visitors visited the vast Expo in Paris which played a crucial role in launching the Art Deco movement. Pamela will take us on a virtual tour through some of the 15,000 exhibits from over twenty national pavilions. Apart from architecture, there were stunning examples of objets d’art, furniture, crystal and fine art.
