Mary Cassatt: Prints and Drawings from the Artist's Studio Details

Review "[Cassatt] may have taken fashion and motherhood as her subjects, but she did so with a triumphant post-feminist calm, before feminism itself had been invented . . . Engaging her printwork may be, it is also deft and inventive . . . Mary Cassatt portrays a vastly more experimental artist than the one suggested by her more considered pastels and oils."---Charles Darwent, Times Literary Supplement"For anyone with a special interest in the aesthetics and connoisseurship of modern printmaking, this show and its scrupulously annotated catalog are not to be missed."---Hilton Kramer, New York Observer Read more About the Author Warren Adelson is President of Adelson Galleries and a member of the catalogue raisonné committees for John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt.

Mary Cassatt is a printmaking beast (which is a positive thing). Her drypoint etchings are beautiful and sensitive and her colored aquatints are amazing. GREAT GREAT GREATAlso, there a good reproductions which is probably what you are wondering.
