Exhibition Envy--Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist in Paris

Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist in Paris

Musée Jacquemart-André 
Paris, France
March 9-July 23, 2018
I am not a saint. I'm not overly concerned that I feel a tiny pulse of envy when others do things I want to do, and also I do feel a tiny sense of satisfaction when I get to do things that others don't. I'm just gonna hope it doesn't make you too unhappy...because I'm going to Paris this summer! And I plan on seeing this exhibit!
Like I said, I'm no saint. 😏
The exhibition focuses on the only American female artist in the Impressionist movement...This monographic exhibition will enable visitors to rediscover Mary Cassatt through fifty major works, comprising oils, pastels, drawings, and engravings, which, complemented by various documentary sources, will convey her modernist approach — that of an American woman in Paris.
The exhibition will bring together a selection of exceptional works loaned from major American museums, such as Washington’s National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Terra Foundation in Chicago; works will also be loaned by prestigious institutions in France — the Musée d’Orsay, the Petit Palais, INHA, and the BnF (French National Library) — and in Europe, such as the Bilbao Museum of Fine Arts, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, and the Bührle Foundation in Zurich. There will also be many works from private collections. Rarely exhibited, these masterpieces will be brought together in the exhibition for the first time.
