Foreword

This handbook is designed to furnish the information necessary for intelligent appreciation of the purely artistic features of the Exposition.  It is planned first to explain the symbolism of the architecture, sculpture and painting; and second, to point out the special qualities that give each artistic unit its individual appeal.  It is made for the intelligent observer who, having enjoyed the purely aesthetic impression of the various works of art, feels a legitimate curiosity about their meaning.

Everything possible has been done to make the volume a guide rather than merely a general treatise.  The chapter groupings are the most obviously serviceable ones.  Running heads will be found at the tops of the pages, and the sub-headings and catch-titles in each chapter are designed to make reference. to individual features as easy as possible.  A complete index is added at the end.
