In the final installment of the Great Women in Art series, we will be discussing Cassatt, another “New Woman” of the 19th century. Cassatt was born in Pennsylvania but spent much of her life in Europe, particularly France. Not only did Cassatt live an atypical life for a woman in the 19th and early 20th centuries (she was a professional artist and never married), she produced avant-garde paintings and prints. Cassatt was one of the few women to exhibit in the Impressionist Exhibitions, and her paintings show a remarkable modernity for the era. We will also view many of Cassatt’s extraordinary prints, which combine Japanese influences, Impressionist subject matter and her decidedly female viewpoint. Presented by Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design.
