The Art of…

… impressionism, by Mary Cassatt

Cassatt is an American artist best known for her portraits of mothers with their children. She was 15 when she began to seriously study art but became disappointed with her education in America and moved to Paris with her family. The Paris art scene was brimming with the new impressionistic style at that time, and Cassatt found that it suited her talents and sensibilities.
