Mary Cassatt: American Imp

Subject: FNA
Course Number: 250
Credits: 2 Credits
Available Online: No
This course examines the art and life of Mary Cassatt, often called �America�s greatest female artist.� Living in Paris at the height of the Impressionist movement, she was accepted as the only American within the major circle of the Impressionists and exhibited her work with them on several occasions. Cassatt, living independently abroad when the age called for women to exist absolutely in the private sphere of �Home and Hearth,� placed herself on the margins of culture. Students will be challenged to contemplate the importance of works not only on technical merit, but also within the context of the society and age in which they were created.
