Mary Cassatt

These are my favourite Mary Cassatt prints. I was fortunate to see them amongst the works in the Americans in Paris 1860-1900 exhibition, at the National Gallery in 2006. These were all produced between 1890 and 91, which is the time that I consider Cassatt produced her best work. I especially love the top three images, and can definitely see an oriental influence in her work.
