Cassatt 1880 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Mary Cassatt (1845-1926)

An impression of her paintings

at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880



Here below you will find an impression of the at least 18 works that Mary Cassatt showed at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880, including at least 10 engravings that were probably meant for the project ‘Le jour et la nuit’. All the works are portraits / figure paintings (catalogue numbers 17-32). Mark the softness and gentleness of no.20 and the palet of colours on the skin of no. 22. Note also the stronger indicated lines in no.21.
Some suggestions are very uncertain, others I just render to compare, see account. I render the pictures by format, theme and number. See link for the subscriptions and see for the sources at the bottom of the main page on Mary Cassatt. Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
