Fine Art Friday – Mary Cassatt Posted on May 8, 2009 by alivingpencil The Map, 1890 Mary Cassatt has always been one of my favorites. And who better to highlight so close to Mother’s Day? I just discovered these prints using a technique called drypoint. A Mother’s Kiss, 1891 These two are color drypoints. The Bath, 1891 Happy Mother’s Day!

My next book up (once I finish the one I’m reading) is “Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper” which is historical fiction about Mary and Lydia. I can’t wait to read it.She’s one of my favorites, and I’m looking forward to learning more about her.
I don’t recall seeing her b&w before; always enjoy expanding my inner gallery! Mary C brings back memories because I had a baby book for my daughter with her artwork in it.
Ahh, Mary Cassatt, already my heart is glad! :0)
she has been popular with me since discovering this painting when Miss Dog Lover was a toddler…. http://explorepahistory.com/displayimage.php?imgId=509 — the little one on Mom’s lap looks just like Miss Dog Lover did. 🙂
@TobyBo – That’s a nice piece that isn’t as well-known as some of Cassatt’s other paintings. Thanks for the link.
