Succeeds in being a gorgeous book full of full page nicely done color reproductions including much of her lesser known work and photos and ephemera from her life. But doesn't stop there, with essays by different writers on her life in the art world, relationships. with other artists (juicy art gossip alert,) and more. Unless you are as student of Cassatt I think you will come away amazed at what you learn. Once the token female impressionist this book proves her work and life make the fellows look downright pedestrian.
This huge tome was released in conjunction with the Art Institute of Chicago's exhibit in 1998.

Book description
Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) holds a unique place in the history of art. One of the few women artists to succeed professionally in her era, she was the only American invited to exhibit with the French Impressionists. This handsome volume, richly illustrated with paintings, prints, and pastels spanning Cassatt's entire career, accompanies a major traveling exhibition that opens at The Art Institute of Chicago in October 1998.

Essays trace Cassatt's development from her early influences through her critical role in bringing Old Master and Impressionist art to the United States. The superb colorplates clearly demonstrate why Cassatt is considered one of North America's most important artists.
