Visiting Mary Cassatt: The Paris Apartment in Cassatt's Art
New Brunswick, NJ 08901
Lecture presented by Nancy Mowll Mathews, Eugenie Prendergast Senior Curator of Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Art Emerita at Williams College Museum of Art.
Housing her art studio in her Paris apartment, Mary Cassatt lived like most Parisians, who typically combined public and private activities in the same space. Her art reflects her thinking about this combination. This lecture provides the personal and professional context for the two major print portfolios that Cassatt produced in 1890 and 1891, including the set of twelve drypoints that is the centerpiece of the exhibition “Mary Cassatt Prints: In the Company of Women.” Free to Rutgers faculty, staff, and students; $5 museum members; $10 general admission.
