Mary Cassatt: A Woman and a Girl Driving

A Woman and a Girl Driving: Mary Cassatt

Mary Cassatt, a notable American Impressionist living in France, shows us a woman and a girl driving a horse-drawn carriage. A woman with the reins beside a little girl driving the carriage with their chaperone behind. The woman is empowered by Cassatt and possesses an air of concentration and self-assurance. The painting is a testament to the awakening of the personal and political consciousness of women and was painted in 1881.

Mary Cassatt’s A Woman and a Girl Driving is in the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania, United States.
