cf. Bruno Foucart et al. Normandie: Queen of the Seas, 1985, p. 78 for an illustration of the lacquer mural La Chasse (Hunting) for the partition wall between the Smoking Room and the first-class Salon on the Normandie oceanliner (see Art et Décoration, July 1935, p. 252). Composed of multiple panels, the mural was redesigned in 1949 by Dunand's second son, Pierre, and rehung in 24 sections on the oceanliner Liberté, which made its inauguaral voyage to New York on 17 August 1950.
The Normandie had made its final trip to New York in 1939 and remained there because wartime conditions had made its return voyage unsafe. In February 1942, when a fire broke out on board, the firefighters doused the ship with so much water that it capsized the next day. Fortunately, the decorations had been previously packed and stored in a warehouse.
The interiors of the first class Grand Salon and first class Dining Room on the Liberté referenced those on the Normandie. Certain works of art from the Normandie were integrated into the decor, such as Jean Dunand's La Chasse in the Salon and Les Vendages in the first class Smoking Lounge. Unlike the original composition of the mural in 1935, La Chasse featured additional panels depicting foliate decoration adjacent to the hunter carrying his catch and the archer with his bow drawn. These panels occupied the former position of the double doors within the mural on the Normandie.
