The foremost female American artist of the late nineteenth century, Mary Cassatt lived much of her life in France, where she befriended Edgar Degas and exhibited with the other Impressionists. Her compositions are celebrated for their stunning depiction of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bond shared between mothers and children. Her work and support of the avant-garde exerted a lasting influence on the development of the American taste in art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Cassatt’s complete paintings, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
