Mary Cassatt (1845-1926) was born in Pennsylvania and later settled in Paris. Through her long friendship with artist Edgar Degas, she met the painters of the Impressionist school and frequently exhibited with them. One of only a handful of female painters who were well known and widely exhibited during their lifetimes, Mary Cassatt is best remembered for her intimate scenes of domestic life, including many mother-and-child portraits.
Cassatt for Kids contains twelve of her most beloved paintings, including The Bath and Children Playing on the Beach, in a toddler-friendly board-book format.
About the Editor
Margaret E. Hyde was inspired to create the Great Art for Kids books when she could not find age-appropriate art books for her own little girl. As an alternative to having her expensive coffee-table books drooled on, Mrs. Hyde designed these durable board books to introduce young children to the great painters. A native of Memphis, Mrs. Hyde now lives in Santa Monica with her family.
Other titles in the Great Art for Kids Series are Impressionists for Kids, Matisse for Kids, Picasso for Kids, Renoir for Kids, and Van Gogh for Kids, all available from Pelican.
