Mary Cassatt is a major Impressionist painter and one of the most significant American artists. She exhibited side by side with Renoir, Monet, and her friend, Degas. Cassatt received France’s highest honor, the Legion of Honor, and was also a member of the National Academy of Design. Cassatt is perhaps best known for her images of mothers and children. Her work is found in many museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Art Boston, and the National Gallery of Art.
