Résumé : 

A beautifully illustrated rediscovery of a distinguished American artist

Acclaimed and beloved for her paintings of women and children in intimate, informal settings, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was the only American artist to exhibit with the French Impressionists in Paris. Cassatt celebrated women in an age of rapid female advancement, and she explained her affinity for depicting children, saying they are "natural and truthful," two of the qualities that her generation of artists was energetically pursuing. This beautiful book, edited by a preeminent Cassatt scholar, brings together more than sixty important works that span the entirety of Cassatt's career. Included here are works across all media in which Cassatt worked--oils, pastels, drawings, and prints--as well as numerous documentary sources that combine to convey a full and nuanced account of Cassatt as an American artist in Paris.
