Girl Sewing

1882: Musée d'Orsay, Paris

Mary Cassatt often captured quiet, domestic moments such as this. Here Cassatt paints the background with deft, Impressionist strokes yet lends her own more exacting style to the form of the girl - a cross between contemporary art and the portraiture of the masters she so greatly admired.
