An intimate look at one of the most radical and groundbreaking printmakers of all time, the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt
This book examines the inventive experimentation and innovation of one of the finest and most creative printmakers of the 19th century. A contemporary of other superior printmakers, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) made some of her greatest achievements in the medium of printmaking. Cassatt embraced etching and the prints she produced reveal a different side of the American artist who was at the center of the French art world.
Exploring themes of making, domesticity, motherhood, fashion, intimacy and solitude, Inside Out brings readers into close contact with an artist who used printmaking to make sense of the meanings and expressions of selfhood and interiority in a changing modern world. This publication, which examines the artist's exploration of the medium over a period of more than two decades, also features an original pattern design by contemporary designer Frances MacLeod--echoing and updating the patterns and prints in Cassatt's works and in interiors of the time.
