Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist
March 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$43
Born to privilege in Pennsylvania, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) was one of the leading artists in the Impressionist movement of the late 1800s. She traveled the world at an early age and, despite the objections of her aristocratic family, studied with the French masters and perfected her impressionist style. Befriended and mentored by Edgar Degas, Cassatt is best known for her luminous portraits of women and children in everyday domestic settings, such as The Morning Toilet (1886) and Mother Feeding a Child (1898). Cassatt, who remained a strongly American expatriate, became a mentor and role model to young American artists and nurtured the fledgling Impressionist movement.
