Little Girl in a Blue Armchair 1878: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
By artist Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), in a Private Collection
The naturalism of childhood, full of the carefree fidgeting that longs to cast off fussy clothes and to embrace times of play is characterized in this brilliant and impeccably observed work by American Impressionist Mary Cassatt. The artist's strong colors and energetic brushwork form a dance that underlines the physical presence of the objects she paints with a delicate truth. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.

Mary Cassatt (1844-1926)

Mary Stevenson Cassatt was an American painter and printmaker. She lived most of her life in France, where she befriended Edgar Degas and exhibited with the Impressionists. Cassatt paintings most often depicted the private lives of women, especially on the special bond that exits between mothers and daughters.

Mary Cassatt was born in Pennsylvania, and her family valued travel as part of education. Despite her family's objections to her pursuit of a career in art, she enrolled in art school in Pennsylvania. Cassatt moved to Paris in 1866 to study the old masters. She was accepted into the Paris Salon in 1872, but critics said her paintings were too bright and too realistic, thus making her subjects unflattering.

Mary Cassatt's style changed throughout her career, as she moved from impressionism and experimented with various techniques. Starting in the 1890s, Mary Cassatt became an advisor to American artists as well as gallery owners, while her work slowly gained recognition in the United States. Even in old age, plagued by cataracts, diabetes, rheumatism, and neuralgia, she continued to paint and travel.
