Mary Stevenson Cassatt May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children. This original pastel is believed to have been done during her collaboration with her friend and teacher Edgar Degas.
