Art and Beauty Tuesday--Mary Cassatt

Mary Cassatt was an American painter famous for her paintings of mothers and children.  I was drawn to the painterly style in this one entitled Mother Holding Her Baby 1917. It really shows that mothers and babies are the same throughout time.

For most men I expect that Cassatt's paintings are always a bit of a revelation.

I never thought of that. I bet you're right.

Mary Cassatt is one of my favorite impressionist painters. As a photographer I tried to emulate what she painted in my "Madonna" portraits of mother and child. Thanks for this beautiful painting.

What a wonderful artist to emulate!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
