Exhibition on Screen: Mary Cassatt - Painting the Modern Woman

  • Genre: Other

Synopsis

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her.

Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often-overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted.She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself.

She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals - the Impressionists - a movement that transformed the language of art.
