One of my grandmothers favorite artists, she send me a poster of one of her mother and child paintings when my daughter was born. 8 years later I sent her this book from across the country and she loved it. I got to see it when I visited recently and we looked at it together. Beautiful images and really lovely stories about her life and work. I'm glad I made the purchase.

I was so happy to find this book of Mary Cassatt's wonderful paintings. It is like a window into the world of a by gone era. At the turn of the century, this young woman focused on art and painted everything around here in her world, especially women and children. The maternal relationship of her time was sweet, intimate and endearing. This book is a treasure house of her many treasures that she left for all of us.
