Mary Cassatt--A French Immpressionist--By:Trinity Smallwood

She was born on May 22, 1844, in Allegheny City, PennsylvaniaShe died in 1926

I think the person who influenced her the most was Edgar Degas, because he invited her to join the immpressionists, and she admired his work, "I saw art then as I wanted to see it."

A Short Video About Mary!

Her favorite book would be Charlotte's Web, and her favorite type of music would be classic country.

This is one of her paintings. It's called: The Child's Bath

BiographyI was born into an upper-middle-class family, and people say that I inherited my ability from my mother. My first experience with art was when I was eleven, at Paris' World Fair. My family disagreed with me becoming an artist, but I still did it anyway.

This piece is called: Little Girl in a Blue Armchair

This is Allengheney City, Pennsylvania

"If you see beauty where others don't, work harder to let them see."

"If you see something amazing, don't try to copy it--try to interpret it in your own way."

She made her own technique in the late 1880's, by combining drypoint, aquatint, and etching
