Mary Cassatt At Work

 

Opening May 18th Through September 8th, 2024

Philadelphia Museum of Art

Dorrance Galleries: Main Building

2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Philadelphia, PA  19130

A celebrated member of the French Impressionists, Pennsylvania-born Mary Cassatt challenged the conventional expectations of Philadelphia’s elite. In Paris, Cassatt committed herself to a career as a professional artist and made the social, intellectual, and working lives of modern women a core subject of her prints, paintings, and pastels. Though recognized in her lifetime for her intimate depictions of women and children, Cassatt has yet to be appreciated for her serious engagement with the realities of gender and labor in her portrayal of other traditionally feminine activities, such as embroidery, reading, or making social appearances.

 

These depictions lie at the heart of Mary Cassatt at Work, which will present over 130 diverse works that follow the artist’s evolving practice and demonstrate her interest in the “serious work” of artmaking. The exhibition will present new findings about the materials she used and her processes—which were advanced for her era—as it coincides with a detailed technical study of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s significant Cassatt holdings.

 

Mary Cassatt at Work is the first major showing of the artist’s oeuvre since 1998–99. By considering her professionalism, her biography, and the wider Parisian world she inhabited, a richer and more complex picture of Cassatt develops, inviting contemporary conversations about gender, work, and artistic agency.

Treasury Department Proposes to

Sharpen the Teeth of CFIUS Enforcement

Global Trade Law Blog

The Treasury Department is seeking to equip Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) with greater enforcement and oversight authority. These new powers include the ability to request more information from transaction parties and also to assess more significant penalties—in some cases, potentially greater than the transaction value—against companies who fail to comply with mandatory filing requirements or violate mitigation agreements.

 

These proposed changes demonstrate an increasing willingness by CFIUS to aggressively enforce its authority over transactions impacting U.S. national security. Transaction parties before CFIUS (and their investors) should carefully evaluate CFIUS risk early in the life cycle of any investment or strategic transaction.
