Abstract:

In this volume, the author examines the reasons for the general lack of recognition she perceives for American painter and printmaker, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), and also demonstrates why she feels that Cassatt should be considered one of the top Impressionists of her era. She gauges the wide variety of influences which shaped Cassatt's career, from her commitment to her early oils and pastels and her study of the techniques of the Old Masters, her exploration of modernist ideas to her later interest in the methods of Japanese print-making. Despite the tremendous diversity of her sources, Cassatt pursued one theme -- the depiction of women in all phases of their lives -- defending the portrayal of maternity and womanhood from the charges of sentimentality.
