In the summer of 1891, on the site of the World's Columbian Exposition, Augustus St Gaudens looked to Architect Daniel Hudson Burnham and said, "look here old fellow, do you realize that this is the greatest meeting of artists since the fifteenth century!" And surely it was. Chicago's sculptural legacy from the 1893 World's Fair is a remarkable and ongoing colleciton of history, aspiration, and art. GREGORY H. JENKINS AIA photographs this Chicago Legacy. Daniel Chester French, Lorado Taft, Philip Martiny, Henry Hering, James Earle Fraser, Rene Chambellan, Richard Bock, Carl Beil and Leon Hermant - and many more are included in the collection.
