Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist in Paris
Acclaimed for her paintings of women and children in intimate, informal settings, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) was the only American artist to exhibit with the French Impressionists in Paris. Cassatt celebrated women in an age of rapid female advancement, and she explained her affinity for depicting children, saying they are “natural and truthful,” two of the qualities that her generation of artists was energetically pursuing. This beautiful book, which accompanied an exhibition at the Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris, in 2018 and is edited by a preeminent Cassatt scholar, brings together more than sixty important works that span the entirety of Cassatt’s career.
