Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) holds a unique place in the history of art. One of the few women artists to succeed professionally in her era, she was the only American invited to exhibit with the French Impressionists. This handsome volume, richly illustrated with paintings, prints, and pastels spanning Cassatt's entire career, accompanies a major traveling exhibition that opens at The Art Institute of Chicago in October 1998.Essays trace Cassatt's development from her early influences through her critical role in bringing Old Master and Impressionist art to the United States. The superb colorplates clearly demonstrate why Cassatt is considered one of North America's most important artists. Supplementary works by Cassatt's contemporaries are reproduced along with numerous photographs and the first complete list of exhibitions in which Cassatt participated in her lifetime.
The exhibition travels to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Judith A. Barter is Field-McCormick Curator of American Arts at The Art Institute of Chicago.
George T. M. Shackelford is curator of European paintings, and Erica E. Hirshler is associate curator in the Department of American Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Kevin Sharp and Andrew Walker work in the Department of American Arts at The Art Institute of Chicago. (E2)
