10.10 Mary Cassatt, an Impressionist Painter

Mary Cassatt was born in the US, but spent most of her life in France, where she became known as a prominent member of the Impressionist movement. She was known for her exquisite paintings and prints, many of them revolving around the intimate bond between mothers and children. She had a close working relationship with Edgar Degas. Her artwork can be found in renowned museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
