Happy Birthday, Mary Cassatt

Today is American Impressionist painter, Mary Cassatt's birthday (thanks again, Google). A contemporary of Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Pierre Auguste Renior and, most notably, Edgar Degas, Cassatt made most of her paintings in France, showing at salons with fellow Impressionists. The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds a vast collection of Cassatt's paintings. However, since the American Painting galleries are currently closed for renovation, the Met's online archive of her work will have to suffice.
