Illuminating the history and character of one of the first internationally significant exhibitions of American art, this informative catalogue showcases a representative selection of 90 paintings and 10 sculptures from the nearly 1,200 works by contemporary American artists displayed at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, including landscapes, history paintings, genre compositions and portraits by such figures as Homer, Eakins, Sargent, Chase, Whistler, Inness, Hassam, Vedder and Moran. An amplified and extensively illustrated version of the 1893 exhibition checklist is preceded by a thematic presentation of the featured paintings and sculptures and two substantial essays that assess the impact of the Exposition on national perceptions of American culture and describe in detail controversies surrounding the organization of the American art exhibition at the fair.
