Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Cassatt is most famous for her paintings of mothers and babies, and that's what first attracts "Claire" because she has a new baby sister. But through research for her class report Claire learns many surprising facts about Mary: she was an American who lived in France nearly all her life, she never married or had children herself, and she became a professional artist at a time when respectable ladies simply did not do that! With beautiful reproductions of Mary Cassatt's best-loved paintings as well as lively childlike pictures that illustrate her life, this Smart About Art book gives children a wonderful "portrait" of a great artist and fascinating woman.

Illustrated by Jennifer Kalis.

Synopsis:

With simple language, colorful drawings and photos, and reproductions of famous artwork, this book tells a story of a girl who, while researching the paintings of Mary Cassatt, learns many surprising facts about the famous artist's life. Full color.
