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."

"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."
