Dufy Gallery

The former reception hall of the museum houses the huge mural painted by Raoul Dufy for the 1937 International Art and Technology Exhibition. Originally installed in the Pavillon de la Lumière built by Mallet-Stevens, it depicts the history of electricity through its applications and inventors.

“To promote the role of electricity in the life of the nation and especially  the crucial social role played by electric light” was the  brief for the commission given to Dufy in July 1936 by the Compagnie Parisienne de Distribution d’Electricité.
