MARY CASSATT

An American woman was at the very heart of a radical revolution in art. Impressionism changed the art world forever. Overcoming social stigma, and cultural as well as national boundaries, Mary Cassatt defied the times to become an inde- pendent, innovative, and professional artist. She is famous for her unromanticized images of women and children, not saccha- rin or sentimental, but honest, realistic and yet still adorable. Join us for a look at her beautiful images, her interesting life and her celebrated accomplishments.
