3.0 out of 5 stars Showing Mary Cassatt's differing styles 12 May 2008
By dee - Published on Amazon.com
The book I received had a different cover, but I ordered the book in "very good condition."
It must be an earlier print run of the same book, same author, same publisher.
The size of art and layout of each painting is good.
The author's comments were interesting and helpful in viewing Cassatt's art.
It is easy to see the other impressionist's influence on Cassatt and her art.

4.0 out of 5 stars A collection of the work of a trailblazing female artist 29 Dec 2006
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Mary Cassatt was truly a pioneer in the art world, paving the way for women to branch out beyond the "female domain." Her art career began in 1872, when her first painting was exhibited in Paris. During her career, she was deeply appreciated in France, but largely ignored in her native United States, even though she received her artist's training in Philadelphia.

This book is a collection of her work and if they knew nothing about the artist, most people would be able to determine that the artist was female. Most of the scenes in the book depict a woman doing something typical of women in the nineteenth century. Women are holding children, giving them baths; children are posing for portraits or women attending social events. In the rare occasions that men appear, they are doing "men work" and are extraneous to the action.

One of the true trailblazers of the women's movement, Cassatt herself never realized the significance of her achievements. Shortly before her death in 1926, she was quoted as saying, "After all, a woman's vocation in life is to bear children." However, despite her thoughts she did break an enormous amount of new ground in the changing role of women. By demonstrating that women could create quality art, she helped make it possible for women to gain opportunities in all walks of life. This book is a sound tribute to that fact.

5.0 out of 5 stars No One Quite Like Mary Cassatt 24 Nov 2012
By mizbehaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mary Cassatt was never married and had no children, yet no one could capture the love and tenderness between a mother and child or the disappointment in a little girl's face than Mary Cassatt.

From children with shovels and pails on a beach to a baby in a mother's arms, Cassatt gives an intimate picture of the special relationship between children and their mothers that no one has captured before or since.

What do you wish from a art book? Large pictures, of cause. That is exactly this book offered. I am learning oil painting, these large prints of Mary Cassatt's art works give me a lot of details to observe. I will purchase another copy of this book for my sister.
