An American in Paris

Pennsylvania-born Mary Cassatt was the only American invited into the Impressionists group in Paris in the late 1800s. She became instrumental in bringing art by the Impressionists to America.

Mary Cassatt: Friends and Family is on exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts until January 25, 2009. In preparation for viewing the exhibit, NMWA's curator recommends the biography Mary Cassatt: A Life by Nancy Mowll Matthews.
