Transcript of Mary Cassatt- Erica Massey's art project :)

Mary Cassatt born:
May 22, 1844 in
Allegheny City, Pa., U.S. died:
June 14, 1926,
Château de
Beaufresne,
near Paris, Fr. Portrait of
a Little Girl
1878
This painting portrays the daughter of friends of Cassatt along with her dog. Mary Cassatt was famous for being a very natural artist, uncommon for the time, and throughout her life she painted scenes depicing children and their mothers. In works such as the 1884 painting Children Playing on the Beach, Mary Cassatt looked at children with an honest eye. Cassatt captured their clumsy and often random motions and gave them a real rather than a cherubic aspect. With legs sprawled out for balance and a shovel gripped awkwardly in a little fist, the child in the foreground of Mary Cassatt's Children Playing on the Beach is intent on the act of filling a bucket, fully unaware of the viewer's gaze.

1884 The Child's Bath by Mary Cassatt, painted in 1893, demonstrates Mary Cassatt's increased interest in Japanese art in her later career. Cassatt admired Utamaro, a late 18th-century ukiyo-e master who was renowned for his portrayal of the private lives of women going about their daily activities The Child's

1893 Mary Cassatt's 1874 work Woman Reading was part of her first exhibition with the Impressionists. Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas saw a work by Cassatt at the official Salon, and a few years later he urged her to exhibit with the Impressionists. She became the first and only American in the circle. In paintings such as Woman Reading, Mary Cassatt con­centrated on the seemingly simple daily activities of a middle-class woman's life: welcoming friends for tea, answering letters, and reading. The critics found Mary Cassatt's work fresh and real, demonstrative of her mastery of color as well as the domestic subject.
