Overview

Great Women Artists: Mary Cassatt profiles the impressionist painter known best for her angelic and prolific mother-and-child theme paintings. The video takes an informative look at Cassatt's biography, her productive career, and her one-of-a-kind painting style. An admirer of Degas, Cassatt's earlier works are marked by a certain lyrical effulgence and gentle sunlight. Toward the end of the 19th century, however, her draftsmanship becomes more emphatic, her colors bolder and clearer. Throughout her life, Cassatt advocates collecting art and persuades her brother to acquire works by Manet, Monet, Morisot, Renoir, Degas, and Pisarro, making him one of the first important American collectors.
