This limited edition large format giclée print of the interior of a ski chalet by René Prou is made from a photographic plate that appeared in “Exposition Internationale De 1937, Maurice Dufrene, Ensembles Mobiliers, Vol 1”, a rare portfolio documenting European Arts Decoratifs interiors in 1937. The original photograph is believed to be either in a private collection or destroyed in WW II.

Kohlmann joined the art department of the Louvre Department Stores, called Studium Louvre, and was the director from 1927 to 1937. He helped design the pavilion of the Louvre Department Stores in the Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in 1925 in Paris. After 1925, he introduced the use of tubular steel frames into his furniture designs. From 1933 on he collaborated on the decoration of Notre Dame and Pantheon in Paris for a State funeral. For the International Exhibition of 1937 he was responsible for projects for Transport and Tourism, Elegance and Ornament, and the Louvre stores. At the International Exhibition in New York in 1939, he collaborated on the presentation of the clothing industries' haute couture and fur. He then completed the interior design and furnishing of the laboratories of Dr. Debat in Garches (1930-1935), offices of the Paris Electricity Company (1933), and the Institute Dental. After the war, he turned to architecture and built schools, centers for the disabled, and private houses.
