Mary Cassatt (American)
Born May 22, 1844, in Allegheny City, PA - Died June 14, 1926, in Le Mesnil-Théribus, France
One of the masters of Impressionism, Mary Cassatt was born in Pennsylvania but resided in France much of her adult life. Having studied with artist Edgar Degas, Cassatt became known particularly for her paintings, drawings and prints that poignantly capture the private and social lives of women, often emphasizing the intimacy between mothers and children. As with other Impressionist artists, one can see in some of her works the influence of Japanese prints popular in the era.
Mary Cassatt exhibited 11 of her paintings with the Impressionists in 1879. The show was a huge success both commercially and critically. Her paintings, drawings and print are in the collection of art museums around the world.
