Mary Cassatt: Impres
Mary Cassatt: Impressionist Painter and Print Maker- Virtual Program

Monday, Jun. 28, 1:30 pm
Mary Cassatt was born in Pennsylvania but lived most of her adult life in France. She became acquainted with Edgar Degas, who introduced her to the Impressionist circle. Out of social necessity for an upper middle class, unmarried woman of her era, she mostly created images of the private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children. But her treatment of her subjects was confident, original, and sometimes even radical. It was very difficult for a woman to be a successful painter in 19th Century Paris, but Mary Cassatt persevered and is today remembered as one of the greatest Impressionists.
