Fine Art Friday – Mary Cassatt

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
