Happy birthday to Pennsylvania-born artist Mary Cassatt, born on this day in 1844. Cassatt attended the PAFA The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts here in Philadelphia before moving to Paris where she lived and worked for many years. In Paris, she had close relationships with many of the impressionists including Berthe Morisot and Edgar #Degas. Her late works, including the two watercolors at the Barnes, focus on the theme of mother and child. Look for this work in room 15 on your next visit. 🎨 Mary Cassatt. “Woman with Nude Boy at Her Left,” c. 1911–1913
