Paris was host to five World’s Fairs in the late 19th century, which further established the capital as a cultural and artistic hub and brought flocks of visitors to see new marvels. This lecture will explore the impact of three World Fairs (1867, 1889, 1900) on Paris, making the city a crucible of the consumer pleasures and feminized work force that drew Degas’ empathetic scrutiny.
