Mary Cassatt (1844-1926)

Sierra Club


Cezanne is one of the most liberal artists I have ever seen. He prefaces every remark with Pour moi it is so and so, but he grants that everyone may be as honest and as true to nature from their convictions; he doesn't believe that everyone should see alike.

American painter, born Pittsburgh (1844-1926). Mary Cassatt lived most of her professional career in Europe, like many of her contemporaries among American artists and literary figures. Cassatt began studying painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia (1861-1865), then studied in Paris. Her first painting was accepted for the Salon in 1872. She was introduced to Edgar Degas in 1874, and she first exhibited in an Impressionist show in 1879. From then until 1886 she was an active member of the Impressionist circle. After 1914 she was compelled to stop painting by failing eyesight.
