Editorial Reviews

Unmarried and childless, Mary Cassatt nevertheless became America's first impressionist painter with her everyday depictions of mothers and children. This 55-minute documentary takes viewers to Paris and its countryside where the expatriate mixed with the likes of Edgar Degas, became the only American invited to join the French impressionists, and contributed to the burgeoning women's suffrage movement. Drawing upon excerpts of letters and diaries from her family, fellow painters, and friends--as well as her own words--this authoritative film explores her influences, as varied as her spirited mother to the masters hanging in the Louvre. Narrator Anne Archer also details Cassatt's significant role in the changing of the art world and challenges like the depressions after the deaths of family members, which kept her from painting for years at a time. Throughout, viewers are treated to footage of her paintings, and those of her friends and influences. --Kimberly Heinrichs

I enjoyed the DVD of Mary Cassatt. Even though she is not one of my favorite artists I loved this film of her. The film is good quality and I would recommend it to any other artist who enjoy
watching films on the Impressionist.

Love the quality of the pictures. A good choice of paintings showcasing Mary Cassatt's talents. An American Impressionist, I love this book.

I saw this quite a while ago, but I wrote down somewhere that it's a 5-star work. This work answers how an American became involved with the impressionist school. It also speaks a bit on women artists. I forgot whether it supports or dismisses the idea that Cassatt painted women and children because she was saddened by her own childlessness. It must be noted that Impressionism was considered radical at the time, but now that it's deemed peaceful and pretty, many viewers, especially those with girly sensibilities, will love seeing so much of Cassatt's ouvre.
