One hundred years ago, San Francisco hosted a spectacular world's fair. The 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) drew millions of visitors, and its attractions included the most comprehensive art exhibition ever mounted on the West Coast. A century later, masterpieces representing a significant array of art shown at the PPIE, from Impressionism to Futurism, are reunited in this gorgeous and definitive catalogue. Filled with lavish reproductions and historical photographs - some being published for the first time - Jewel City
is indispensible for understanding the role played by the United States and California in the reception of modernism, as well as the Bay Area's significant place on the international stage. Softcover, 400 pages.
