Happy Labor Day!

It’s Labor Day, and we’re hard at work here at the museum. Well, not today, thanks to those who labored before us. But we have been unusually busy recently getting ready to open the Postal Plaza, and in honor of that imminent event and the holiday, I share with you a classic image of labor from the history of art (and our collection):

Jean-François Millet, "The Wool Carder," 1855-56. Etching on vellum, Gardiner Permanent Art Collection, 80-0082.

Jean-François Millet, “The Wool Carder,” 1855-56. Etching on vellum, Gardiner Permanent Art Collection, 80-0082.

I hope you’ll come and see it in person when we open later this semester!

Next week: the conclusion of the four-part series, Art in Unexpected Places.
