Mary Cassatt: the painter of motherhood

Mary Stevenson Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American artist but she lived in France  for many years. She often painted mothers and children with particular emphasis on the bonds between them.
It’s a bit ironic that being one of the most iconic painters of motherhood, she never married or had children.
Mary Cassatt spent much of her adult life with her sister Lydia and her children, who probably served as the models and inspiration for Cassatt’s many paintings depicting mothers and children.
