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.

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.

I like this product very much and have been using it for year's to make all kinds of window clings. I just wish the Plaid company would bring back more of the shimmers and sparkle type paints. However,I have found you can add your own sparkle with glitter..I use many different types of glitters and my window clings are beautiful.
