Meet Mary Cassatt

Posted by in Art History, Featured | 0 comments

marycassattMy name is Mary Cassatt and I was born on May 22, 1844 near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I went to art school at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

My most famous painting is The Child’s Bath painted in 1893.

Three interesting facts about me:

1. I loved painting women and children even though I had no children of my own.

2. I was very good friends with painter Edgar Degas.

3. Although I am an American, I paint in the style of the French Impressionists.

I died June 14, 1926 near Paris, France.

Quote: “I am independent! I can live alone and I love to work.”
