Slow down—men and women at work! Rubbernecking is encouraged in this study center viewing. Works on display include a photograph of female Czechoslovakian beet field workers by Margaret Bourke-White; images of peddlers and storekeepers selling chicken (a 1948 Shanghai photograph by Jack Birns), firewood (an album leaf by Kono Bairei), and mustard (a Whistler etching); an 1863 Indian sketch of a Sikh carpenter; a Robert Rauschenberg silkscreen, G.M. Locomotive Workers; a set of woodblock prints by Katsukawa Shunsho portraying improbably fashionable women raising silkworms; and more!
