Mary Cassatt (1845-1926)

Pictures 5th impressionist exposition 1880

Catalogue numbers: 17-32




Here below you will find an impression of the 18 works that Mary Cassatt showed at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880, including 10 engravings that were probably meant for the project ‘Le jour et la nuit’. Some suggestions are very uncertain, others I just render to compare, see account. For no. 19 I have no suggestion at all. See link for the subscriptions and see at the bottom of the main page on Mary Cassatt for the sources.
