    The Gallery of Machineson the Left Bank, was another major exhibition building, dedicated to displaying the advances in industrial technology at the end of the century. The iron frame of the Grand Palais was quite modern for its time; It appeared light, but in fact it used used nine thousand tons of metal, compared with seven thousand for the construction of the Eiffel Tower. The campaign to create such an American "school" at the Exposition was a great success. The Japanese pavilion was a red pagoda, which oddly, was placed in the section for colonial pavilions.

Unlike classical statues, she was dressed in modern Paris fashion.

    Though it was named after the Russian Czar, the themes of the decoration almost entirely French. Du Bois and Murray compiled over five hundred photographs highlighting the social progress of African Americans since emancipation. Expatriate luminaries, including Whistler and Sargent, were invited to lend international cachet to the group.
