Wordless Wednesday: the Art of Mary Cassatt


Wordless Wednesday

Happy Wordless Wednesday, dear friends.

I love art, good art so… although this is suppose to be a wordless post showcasing my personal photos, I am showcasing the art of Mary Cassatt. I love her paintings of mothers and children and I have used them often in my articles. So in celebration of her work:

Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists.

Cassatt (pronounced ca-SAHT) often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.

      1. I love her color, too. And her gentleness. Have you seen her work in Boston. So wonderful to see art in person. Sigh of pleasure for memories of Paris and the Musee d’Orsay.
