Who is Mary Cassatt?

Mary Cassatt was one of a relatively small number of American women to become professional artists in the nineteenth century when most females, particularly wealthy ones, didn't seek after an art career.

When Cassatt settled in Paris, and artistic upheaval was already underway in France. Changes were occurring in the way that artists demonstrated their work to the general population.

Artists had to pick their very own subjects and styles. Cassatt's legacy was created against the backdrop of these changes.

The Child’s Bath by Mary Cassatt

The Child's Bath Painting by Mary Cassatt

Mary Cassatt often addressed the topic for which she is best known—women and kids—while also experimenting with compositional components of Japanese art.

Cassatt saw a large show of Japanese prints at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1890 and delivered a series of prints influenced by their feel.

The Child's Bath is the culmination of her investigation of a flattened picture plane and decorative patterning. The intimate scene of everyday life echoes the subject of many Japanese prints.

Little Girl in a Blue Armchair by Mary Cassatt 

Little Girl in a Blue Armchair Painting by Mary Cassatt

Little Girl in a Blue Armchair stands as a testament to the relationship between Mary Cassatt and impressionist style, and her assimilation of a more liberated style of painting.

With a constrained palette and vibrant brushstrokes, she created a dynamic interplay of structures within the painting that is reverberated when the child is resting.

Light enters the image through the French entryways in the background and breathes life into the surface and pattern of the inanimate items of the room.

The tilted plane draws attention to the haphazard arrangement of the four large, blue chairs, and the earthy gray floor in the middle of them is painted with a fiery brushwork that gives it its very own existence.

Artist: Mary Cassatt

Date: 1878

Medium: Oil on canvas

Dimensions: 89.5 x 129.8 cm (35 1/4 x 51 1/8 in.)

The Boating Party by Mary Cassatt 

The Boating Party Painting by Mary Cassatt

This piece reveals flat, patterned surfaces, streamlined shading, and unusual angles of Japanese prints.

The dark figure of the man and the skyline is pushed to the top, collapsing a feeling of distance. The higher vantage point gives the observer an angled perspective on the boat. Its structure is partitioned into decorative shapes by the intersection of its horizontal backings.

After 1893, Cassatt began to spend many summers on the Mediterranean coast at Antibes. Under its intense sun, she began to explore different avenues of decorative shading in her paintings.

Here, citron and blue carve solid arcs that separate the image into an assertive, geometric shape. Decorative patterning of the water surface, positions Cassatt as a post-impressionist painter just like Gauguin and Van Gogh.

Artist: Mary Cassatt

Date: 1893/1894

Medium: Oil on canvas

Dimensions: 90 x 117.3 cm (35 7/16 x 46 3/16 in.)

Taking afternoon tea was a social ritual for many, upper-class ladies.

Cassatt focused on portraying the ordinary occasions of everyday life, the artist made that ritual the subject of a series of works painted around 1880, when she had been living abroad.

Her model for this canvas was her sister, Lydia, who had moved to Paris, along with their parents, in 1877 who regularly postured for her.

Cassatt's embrace of French Impressionism is signaled by her scintillating brushwork, high-keyed palette, and emphasis on contrasting complementary hues.

Children Playing on the Beach by Mary Cassatt

children playing on the beach by mary cassatt

The two little girls digging in the sand, absorbed in their activity, they encapsulate the naturalistic attitude prevalent in both art and literature of the time.

Various shades of blue—from the profound electric blue of the dress and shoes to the delicate, diffused blue of the ocean—are utilized all through the work. Accents of white pass on the nearness of daylight bouncing off the dresses, hats, and pails of the little girls.

The background is diminished to its essential components through a series of thinly painted scumbles, leaving areas of the priming layer uncovered.

Artist: Mary Cassatt

Date: 1884

Medium: Oil on canvas

Dimensions: 97.4 x 74.2 cm (38 3/8 x 29 3/16 in.)

Lydia Crocheting in the Garden at Marly by Mary Cassatt Lydia Crocheting in the Garden at Marly Painting by Mary Cassatt

Cassatt and her family spent the mid-year of 1880 at Marly-le-Roi, about ten miles west of Paris. Ignoring the village's noteworthy landmarks, Cassatt instead concentrated painting household conditions.

Here, she portrays her senior sister, Lydia, fashionably dressed and insulated by a walled garden. Lydia is absorbed in creating an antiquated handicraft.

Although Cassatt was generally uninterested in Plein-air painting, she captured the impacts of dazzling daylight beautifully in this work, especially in Lydia's large white hat.

Cassatt enrolled two models for the jobs of mother and child for this canvas.

Louisine Havemeyer, who acquired it in 1901, commented:

“Look at that little child that has just thrown herself against her mother’s knee, regardless of the result and oblivious to the fact that she could disturb ‘her mamma.’ And she is quite right, she does not disturb her mother. Mamma simply draws back a bit and continues to sew.”

Mother Playing with Child by Mary Cassatt

Mother Playing with Child by mary cassatt

Cassatt applied pastel in thick strokes and mixed it into an exceptionally fine surface and in some cases into the paper itself as she did for this painting.

Her redundancy of a specific subject—women, and children—likewise may have been roused by Edgar Degas, who repeated topics, such as, ballet dancers and women washing themselves.

As per his philosophy: "It is essential to do the same subject over again, ten times, a hundred times. Nothing in art must seem to be chance, but even movement."

Artist: Mary Cassatt

Date: 1897
