Painting the Modern Woman
Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.
Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, the world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt was at the heart of it all.
