Her body of work is astonishing but she has managed to fly under the radar as an epic Impressionist. And I could go into a feminist diatribe as to why this is but instead I want more people to know about her. It is thought that a relationship develops between Degas and Cassat but there is flimsy evidence to back that up. A reoccurring theme are the two center figures in her works: Mother and child. It is a little too mushy of a concept for me but I enjoy staring at Cassat's paintings and have found some inspiration of my own. She has so many colorful and rich pieces that I suggest you google her. Because most of her works are so colorful I had to use nifty Polyvore.com to put some looks together.
