Capturing Motherhood

As a tribute to all the mothers out there I wanted to post an image of one of the pastel works by Mary Cassatt, who is well-known for her mother & child pieces. Cassatt lived from May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926, she lived most of her life in France and exhibited among the impressionists.

“Mary Cassatt: Mother Feeding Child (22.16.22)”. In Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2000–. (October 2006)
