RBFS Journeys in Art History-"Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman"

Tuesday, March 21 at 6 pm, Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa). Celebrating Women’s History Month

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art, during the mid-to late-1800s. Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often- overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted. Originally from Pennsylvania, she lived most of her adult life in France. Mary printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals - the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent, Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all. [2021, US, Runtime: 93 min, Not Rated]
