Mary Cassatt Artist Study – Links and Resources

Don’t Miss The Giveaway Below!

From Our Archives – 2007

This is the month for viewing Mary Cassatt‘s paintings in our house. As usual, I made our computer’s wallpaper one of her paintings and the boys are taking turns telling me about it.

New Link: Mary Cassatt biography video on YouTube.

We read Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artist: Mary Cassatt and had to chuckle at several of the pages. I know these books are not meant to be serious and the boys find them a great way to be introduced to a new painter. I followed up the reading of the book with viewing her artwork online, turning a rainy afternoon into a very enjoyable experience.

The boys decided they wanted to try some sort of activity to follow up their online gallery viewing and I just happened to have Color Your Own Mary Cassatt from Dover Publications. This is such a great coloring book for colored pencils or watercolors if you pull the page out and work at a table.

Here are some paintings for you to get started in your study of this enjoyable artist.

The Bath (La Toilette), 1891
Little Girl in a Blue Armchair, 1878
The Boating Party, 1893-94
Two Children at the Seashore, 1884

I hope you can take a few minutes this month to share this special woman impressionist painter with your children. She has a fond spot in my heart, made by the subjects of her paintings; mothers and children are something I hold dear.

Note: There are Amazon.com affiliate links in this post to books and resources I own and have used in my family for many years.
