Mary Cassatt's tender and profound paintings redefined portraiture and broke down barriers for women in art-both as artists and as subjects. This collection focuses on Cassatt's insightful portrayal of women and children living their everyday lives. Fifty magnificent images cover the scope of Cassatt's work, from her early interest in Japanese woodblocks all the way to her exploration of Modernist techniques. Two essays contextualize her as a pioneering female artist and as the American face of Impressionist painting. This is a luminous, robust, and timely celebration of an artist with a unique legacy. A luxurious textured case makes the book a meaningful gift for mothers, feminists, and art lovers.
