The year 2015 marks the centennial of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE), the spectacular world's fair that celebrated both the opening of the Panama Canal and the reconstruction of San Francisco following the devastating 1906 earthquake. The PPIE drew people from all over the world to the City by the Bay, where, in the shadow of the 43-story Tower of Jewels, they witnessed the ultimate technological and artistic achievements at that time. Among its many attractions, the PPIE presented the most comprehensive art exhibition ever shown on the West Coast, giving visitors the opportunity to view premier works from the American and European art movements of the period. This book of postcards contains selected works from the exhibition, ''Jewel City: Art from the Panama-Pacific International Exposition'' held at San Francisco's de Young museum in commemoration of the PPIE centennial. The majority of the works depicted in this book are from the collection of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.Set of 30 Measures 6.5 x 4.75 in.
