Alfred Auguste Janniot was a French sculptor most active in the 1930s. Janniot was educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, a pupil of Jean Antoine Injalbert, and was the winner of the 1919 Prix de Rome. Under the influence of Antoine Bourdelle, most of Janniot's career was given to monumental and architectural sculpture. In 1938 he became an officer in the Legion of Honor. From 1945 through 1959 he held the title of ""Professor of Monumental Art"" at the Beaux-Arts in Paris. This picture book is a showcase of his extensive bas-reliefs on the Palais de la Porte Dorée in Paris, built in 1931 for the Paris Colonial Exposition, portray ships, oceans, and wildlife including antelopes, elephants,zebras, and snakes.
