Summary
"During her lifetime, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) achieved great fame in both France and America. But while she is still highly regarded in the United States, she is now somewhat overlooked in France, where she lived and worked for more than sixty years and where she became the only American artists to exhibit with the Impressionists in Paris. The exhibition 'Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist in Paris', held in the Musée Jacquemart-André, is the first retrospective dedicated to the painter in France since her death. The exhibition will bring together around fifty major works on loan from museums and institutions... Oils, pastels, and prints retrace Cassett's entire career, explore the modernity of her approach, and show how she became one of the leading figures of the avant-garde movement of her day. This catalogue, which complements the exhibition, presents the various facets of an artist who had a complex career: a classically trained painter who became an Impressionist, the brilliant creator of the 'Modern Madonna', and a tireless experimenter, Cassatt was also an ardent supporter of women's suffrage. This catalogue aims to restore Cassatt to her rightful place in the history of modern art."
