Description
American-born painter Mary Cassatt grew up in Pennsylvania but spent the better part of her life and career in France, yet that did not prevent her from gaining a preeminent position among artists in the United States. At the height of her career, she focused almost exclusively on depictions of mothers and children, a subject that became her signature theme. By the outbreak of World War I, Cassatt had to give up painting entirely due to failing eyesight, but she preserved her original enthusiasm and devotion to art until the end of her life. In the American Artist series, you'll read about more masters of the art world who not only depicted American life and landscape through beautiful works but also broadened our perspectives by employing the tools of their trade with the highest levels of creativity and insight. Experience firsthand these artists' vision and influence through the seventy or more spectacular, full-color reproductions of their work. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources.
