In honor of Clarence Buckingham, Patron of Art and a member of the Art Institute, this fountain was presented to the city by his sister, Miss Kate Buckingham. It is patterned after the fountain of Versailles, and is the largest fountain of its type in the world. It cost more than $1,000,000 to build.
