A childrenï¿1/2s biography of the beloved Impressionist, illustrated with the artistï¿1/2s own works. Though remembered for her signature pieces of loving moments captured between a mother and child, Mary Cassatt was anything but conventional. This book chronologically portrays her lifelong artistic journey from her days as a child living abroad to her earned success as the only female American member of the French Impressionists. Her biography shows how one girlï¿1/2s lifelong dream to become an artist came true due to an independent spirit, determination, and commitment to her craft. Cassattï¿1/2s own paintings, 19 of which are included here, demonstrate her various techniques and show how she developed a unique style combining admiration for the old masters with inspiration from the Impressionists.
