Off the Beaten Path: Mary Cassatt at the Mona Bismarck American Center


The Mona Bismarck American Center for art and culture, in the 16th, is showing Mary Cassatt in Paris: Prints & Drawings from the Ambroise Vollard Collection.

Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), was an American Impressionist who lived in Paris, and is best known for her portrayals of mothers and children.

The goal of the Bismarck Center is to strengthen links between the US and France through exhibits, classes, concerts, and other cultural events held at the center’s townhouse overlooking the Seine, the former residence of philanthropist Mona Bismarck.

Thus, art, architecture, history and international relations all come together in this delightful expo.

Seventy prints, drawings, etchings and aquatints, all purchased from Cassatt by art dealer Ambroise Vollard, not only better acquaint us with her work, but provide a wonderful visual record of her creative process.
