The Life and Art of Mary Cassatt with Christian Conrad
Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American artist who was one of the Impressionists. Cassatt broke boundaries of culture and gender. Her paintings and pastels focused on subjects of intimacy, particularly the bond found between mothers and their children. In addition to having close relationships with many of the Impressionist artists, Mary Cassatt was also key in bringing this new form of art to America and helped form important collections at many major museums.
