Mary Cassatt - Summertime
Mary Cassatt was an American impressionist painter who depicted the lives of women, especially the special bond between mother and child. She traveled extensively as a child, and was exposed to the works of the great masters at the World?s Fair in Paris in 1855; Degas and Pissarro would later become her mentors and fellow painters.
When she first began studying art seriously only around twenty percent of all arts students were female, and most professional artists were male. Unlike many of the other female students, she was determined to make art her career, rather than just a social skill. She was disappointed at her art education in the United States, and moved to Paris to study art under private tutors in Paris. Her mother and family friends traveled with her to France, acting as chaperones and can be seen in her artwork.
