In The Picture With is an introduction to the lives and works of great painters. Along with telling the life story of these artists, it examines the techniques behind their paintings, from the best-known to the less familiar works of art.
This title looks at the life and works of Mary Cassatt, including an examination of paintings such as The Child's Bath, Young Woman Sewing in a Garden, The Letter, The Omnibus, At the Opera, Family Group Reading and The Boat Party. It looks at the techniques and colour palette that Cassatt used in these works, encouraging readers to look more closely at the interesting elements of each painting. It also includes a timeline of her life, information on museums and galleries where her work is currently displayed and a chance for readers to use what they have learned to make their own painting in the style of Mary Cassatt.
Artist: Mary Cassatt
