About the Artist:
Mary Stevenson Cassatt was born on May 22, 1844 in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania. At the age of 15 Mary decided to become an artist and enrolled in 1861 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Cassatt became known as a portrait painter and was sought after by American visitors to France. Her work differed from the stiff academic tradition of portrait painting as a mere likeness of most of her subjects were either engaged in some kind of activity or caught in a casual pose. Cassatt's last years were overshadowed with the loss of close people, relatives and friends. we suffered from many diseases, like diabetes and had cataracts on both eyes, which eventually reduced her to near blindness. Mary Cassatt died at the Chateau de Beaufresne on June 14, 1926, and was buried in the family vault at nearby Mesnil-Thribus. The majority of Cassatt's works today are in American collections, while just a small number of paintings remain in France, where we worked.
