        Mother About to Wash Her Sleepy Child

        This article from the WGBH program Sister Wendy: "American Collection" discusses the work of Mary Cassatt, one of the few women and the only American in the French Impressionist circle of artists. Cassatt's early work displayed the powerful influence of Impressionism on color, brushwork, and play of light. The depiction of the subject is also unmistakably Impressionistic: mother and child are unposed, natural, caught in the moment. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Mary Cassatt, American (1844-1926), 1880.
