Mary Cassatt: Portrait de fillette

Portrait de fillette: Mary Cassatt

Portrait de fillette is an 1879 painting by Mary Cassatt, the American painter living in Paris who operated at the height of the trend of Impressionism. Here she exhibits a similar concern with loose and quick brushwork. Despite this, she also succeeds in a true likeness and Realism of expression in the little girl who looks out at us reluctantly if not sulkily.

Mary Cassatt’s Portrait de fillette is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux.
