At first glance, this low bas relief panel seems really busy, and of course it really is, but it's chock-full of Art Deco goodness from 1937.
It was a panel in the dining salon of the French ocean liner, Normandie — andto be specific, in case you're dying to know, the starboard side forward cabin-class. You can view it in person at the Museum of the City of New York.
Mmm. To be an affluent traveler in those days . . .

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
