DESCRIPTION

This exhibition of 23 works features the Zimmerli’s holdings of Mary Cassatt’s prints, including a rare complete set of 12 drypoints from 1890. Cassatt’s major technical achievements in color intaglio printmaking sealed her reputation among the world’s most gifted printmakers. Initially trained in Philadelphia, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) pursued her artistic career in Paris, where she was invited to join the Impressionist group of painters in 1877. Inspired by the experimental prints being made by her artist friends Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro, Cassatt made her first prints during the late 1870s and early 1880s.
