REMAINDER TITLE - ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE STOCKS LAST This collection of some 80 paintings celebrates the centuries-old iconography of women engaged in needlework—an activity that has united women from all countries and in all stations of life. As long ago as the Middle Ages, artists sought to capture the needle-worker's quiet concentration and domestic mien, and to convey the social and cultural symbolism of this largely female domain. Here are treatments of the subject by Vermeer, Chardin, Velasquez, and Dalí; by the Pre-Raphaelite school; and by the Impressionists—in particular the works of women artists Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot.
