Today a new masterpiece is hanging in our galleries—Woman Standing, Holding a Fan by Mary Cassatt. The work, created in 1878–79, is one of only two known canvases painted by the artist almost entirely in the medium of distemper and represents a key moment in her transformation into an Impressionist.

Read more about the work in today's New York Times and the Star-Telegram. And, be sure to see this beautiful painting in person.
