Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American among the French, a woman among the men. Cassatt's paintings are refreshing products of the female gaze, her women in command of their space and bodies, unguarded in a way that her male counterparts couldn't manage to portray: Women relax and babies fidget. Mothers are busy even when they're at leisure. Children dangle off their mothers, bored and happy. And mother and child are always a unified presence. This idealized domesticity earned Cassatt the distinction of painting the "modern Madonna," and she turned her paintings into a genre. Educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Cassatt traveled to and from Europe to study the old masters. She eventually settled in Paris, where her work was accepted into the official salons before she was invited to join the impressionists. Thirty years of Cassatt's paintings fill this calendar.
