Little Girl in a Blue Armchair Painting by Mary Cassatt

Little Girl in a Blue Armchair depicts Cassatt's unique talent for merging the impressionist style with her artistic form. Cassatt shows her ability to use a constrained palette and create vibrant brushstrokes, by showcasing dynamic interplay of structures within the painting that focuses on the child resting.

The Boating Party by Mary Cassatt 

The Boating Party Painting by Mary Cassatt

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 within her paintings.

This piece reveals the flat patterned surfaces, streamline shading, and the unusual angles used in Japanese prints. The dark figured man is pushed to the top of the composition collapsing the 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.

Citron and blue separate the image into an assertive solid geometric shape. The decorative patterning of the water surface, positions Cassatt style as a post-impressionist painter.
