Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Mary Stevenson Cassatt felt that her artistic education in the United States was inadequate, and by 1873 she had made Paris her home. Soon tired of the conservative approach taught in those academies, Cassatt found the answer to her demand for a new kind of painting in the work of the Impressionists, a small circle of independent French artists. In 1877 Edgar Degas invited her to show her work with the group. Cassatt thus became one of only three women and the only American, ever to join the French Impressionists. Cassatt focused mainly on depicting the domestic and social lives of upper-class women.
