Cassatt 1886 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Mary Cassatt


at the 8th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1886

an impression of her paintings


On this page you will find an accounted impression of the just 7 works that Mary Cassatt showed at the 8th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1886, including 1 pastel (catalogue numbers 7-13). Note the adorable children she depicts in no. 10+11. And note the palet of colours in the ‘white’ dress and cap of the young woman in no.7. So beautiful!! 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!




Many suggestions are (quite) certain, some (very) uncertain, for no.10 I render two options, see account. See link for the identification of paintings, the subscriptions and see at the bottom of the main page on Mary Cassatt for the sources.
