“Mary Cassatt: Painting…” @ the Belgrave
Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman – fine portrait of a neglected artist
Released nationally only this week, to coincide with International Women’s Day.
Mary Stevenson Cassatt was an American painter and printmaker (1844-1926). She was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, but lived much of her adult life in France, where she befriended Edgar Degas and exhibited with the Impressionists. A study of a female painter who exhibited with the first impressionists in 19th-century Paris, but saw little of their renown is fascinating and moving.
