Artist of the Month: June: Mary Cassatt

The first artist that will be highlighted is: MARY CASSATT:mary-cassatt-2

Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker.

My favorite description of Mary comes from her Wikipedia page: “She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of “les trois grandes dames” (the three great ladies) of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Berthe Morisot.” And the photograph of Mary below embraces that completely:

I am disappointed that I was only able to locate one biography of Mary – a book that I own… but have not complated yet:cassatt bio.PNG

 

I did locate a historical fiction novel of Mary and her fiendship with Edgar Degas by Robin Olivera: “I Always Loved You” (2014)… I suspect that I do have this book…  somewhere…fictionI also came across a 1999 film… just not sure how easy – or difficult – it will be to hunt it down:film.PNG
