In her time, Mary Cassatt’s pictures of ruddy baby skin and floral house gowns were revolutionary.

In the pastel colors, soft brushwork, and spontaneity of the late 19th-century French Impressionists, American artist Cassatt captured a woman’s affectionate embrace and tender gaze in her 1906 “Mother and Child in the Conservatory.”

The artist was not only one of the few Americans—and the only woman—to become allied with the radical Impressionist art movement in Paris, but her intimate paintings elevated and boldly made public the domestic, everyday life of women.

Throughout her life as an artist working in France, Mary Cassatt fiercely advocated for women’s rights, including the right to vote.

In 1914, on the eve of the First World War, Cassatt said to her close friend, the powerhouse suffragist Louisine Havemeyer, “If the world is to be saved, it will be the women who save it.”

Happy Mother’s Day from NOMA. 💐
