About this artwork

The Ziegfeld Follies, the lavish musical revue created by Florenz Ziegfeld (1868–1932) was suggested as a fitting inclusion to the Century of Progress World’s Fair in Chicago in 1933–34. A letter to that effect was sent by the Director of Concessions at the Fair to Mr. Ziegfeld in January 1932 encouraging him to bring the Follies to Chicago.
German-born architect and designer Henry Harringer (1892-1980) developed a proposal for the Ziegfeld Fashion Theater in addition to creating several exhibits for the Century of Progress. The theater idea never became a reality, perhaps due to the death of Florenz Ziegfeld and the ensuing business difficulties of the Follies.
