oooooOoooOOOoh Mary Cassat, I do love her work. Usually it's the Mothers and the baby cherubs . . . but she painted all sorts of ladies. There is some evidence that she only painted women because that's all she could paint-being a woman herself.

yay ART!!

Spare me Mary. Colors, yes. The rest, trite.

It hangs in the Philadelphia museum of Art. Kinda fun searching for that!
