Description: "The fine Arts Building in Chicago. The Fine Arts Building in Chicago is remarkable among such enterprises as housing within its walls so great a proportion of the artistic, intellectual literary and educational interests of a great city. The building is occupied by sculptors, painters, actors, musicians, writers, illustrators, etchers, gold and silversmiths, carvers, decorators, publishers of special editions, teachers of elocution and expression, the drama and the cognate arts... In short, the Fine Arts Building... does not so much borrow importance from that fact as lend importance to it." Includes five photographs, one of which is of the Thurber Galleries (1909 - S.154). This article was republished in a book form entitled "The Book of the Fine arts Building", 1911. Digital edition. Original cover price 50c. 8 x 11.5.
