Pelican Mary Cassatt: Impressionist Painter

A childrens biography of the beloved Impressionist, illustrated with the artists own works. Though remembered for her signature pieces of loving moments captured between a mother and child, Mary Cassatt was anything but conventional. This b...ook chronologically portrays her lifelong artistic journey from her days as a child living abroad to her earned success as the only female American member of the French Impressionists. Her biography shows how one girls lifelong dream to become an artist came true due to an independent spirit, determination, and commitment to her craft. Cassatts own paintings, 19 of which are included here, demonstrate her various techniques and show how she developed a unique style combining admiration for the old masters with inspiration from the Impressionists.
