Exhibition: Mary Cassatt, an American Impressionist in Paris
Until July 23rd, 2018, the musée Jacquemart-André is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the American painter Mary Cassatt (1844-1926). Born in the United States in 1844, in a family of French origin, she was one of the greatest female figures of Impressionism, in a vast male and French majority. Having lived in Pennsylvania then mainly in Paris, she had a cultural duality which was distinctly reflected in her impressionist paintings. Like most of her peers, Mary Cassatt drew her inspiration from her own daily life and created works using simple themes, closely linked to her personal life. For this retrospective, the musée Jacquemart-André borrowed paintings of the artist from the most famous American museums, such as the Washington National Gallery of art or the Metropolitan Museum of art of New York, but also from French museums like the Musée d'Orsay or the Petit Palais. This unique event is available just a few metro stations away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
