The 1900 International Exposition celebrated achievements in science, technology, the arts, and architecture. The fair brought more than 50 million visitors to the French capital and magnified Paris’ reputation as one of the most sophisticated cities of the dawning 20th century. In this lecture, Curator Mary Weaver Chapin explores the Exposition as well as the arts, fashion, and nightlife that made Belle Époque Paris unique.
