In this lesson, students will learn about one of the few
female Impressionist artists: Mary Cassatt. The way that Cassatt captures light in her painting Summertime is magical. I am jealous of the women on the boat leisurely watching the ducks! Those ducks are the inspiration for this painting that features texture, value and movement.
ABOUT MARY CASSATT
Mary Cassatt was an American artist. She also
lived in France for part of her life. Impressionist artist
Edgar Degas became her friend and influenced her to
take a place in the Impressionist movement. Cassatt
liked painting scenes of family, specifically mothers
with their children.
