Catalogue numbers: 1-11

 

 

Introduction:
On this page you will find an impression of the 11 works that Mary Cassatt showed at the 6th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1881, including 7 pastels. All works were portraits / figure paintings. Note the palet of colours in the ‘white’ cap of the lady in no. 2.
I render the pictures by format and number. Some suggestions are (very) uncertain, see account. For no.10 I couldn’t find a suggestion; for no.11 I render 2 options. See link for the subscriptions and see at the bottom of the main page on Mary Cassatt for the sources. 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!
