Context: Born outside Pittsburgh, Mary Cassatt lived most of her adult life in France. Her work was exhibited in Paris for the first time at the 1872 Salon, and was included in the annual Impressionist exhibitions from 1879 to 1886. Like the Impressionists, Cassatt studied the transformative effects of light on form, and she was influenced by Japanese prints, from which she derived her characteristic manipulation of perspective and bold use of patterns. Cassatt began depicting intimate yet unsentimental scenes ofmothers and children in the late 1880s. These paintings have been interpreted by some scholars as a reworking of the Madonna and Child theme.
