Mary Cassatt

Mary Cassatt

(1844 - 1926)
Born: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Young Woman Sewing in the Garden ( c. 1880-82)
  • The Bath (1893)
  • The Boating Party (1893-94)
Mary Cassatt, although born and trained in America, was not only a masterful painter of the French Impressionist style, but also the only woman to have achieved an international reputation from this period. Cassatt studied under Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy, from whom she acquired her approach of total authenticity of observation. Cassatt traveled to Europe extensively as a child, and eventually moved to Paris in 1866, despite her father's objections. There she began collaborating closely with Edward Degas, who became her mentor. His methods and techniques can be seen throughout her work. Cassatt's work at this time follows the Impressionist style of responding to the action of light and color in everyday scenes, and, in 1874, Cassatt began exhibiting her paintings with other Impressionists. From this point Cassatt was recognized as a member of the French group. She was fond of scenes portraying the lives of woman. Whether in an outdoor scene painted from life, or one involving the connection between children and their mothers, Cassatt revealed a strong sense of affection and warmth seen in few other Impressionistic paintings. In 1890 Cassatt's approach shifted after seeing a show of Japanese woodblock prints. She flattened her painted and printed forms in a manner similar to Japanese traditions. Cassatt stopped working after her eyesight failed around 1914, but she continued to influence the art world. She is credited with bringing the works of the Impressionists to the United States by using her high society connections to influence American collectors.

I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.

I use these markers for children's illustrations, and they are wonderful. I do wish there were more color options for colors. I've found the light colors too few, especially when working with skin tones These pens last a very long time and work well with all sorts of papers. The tip options make this a great marker for precision coloring.

My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!
