Doorway of the Michael Kors show at 610 fifth avenue, NY in Rockefeller Center. This entry door between two shop windows belongs to the “Maison Fran├žaise”, which celebrates the “Friendship of France and the United States. It features a gilded bas-relief by Alfred Janniot called : “Paris and New York Joining Hands Above Figures of Poetry, Beauty and Elegance”, dating from 1934.

This detail shows two of the three graces: poetry, and beauty. The third of the three graces (elegance) also appears on the doorway but is not shown in this picture.
