"Women should be someone and not something." ~Mary Cassatt
A woman and child in the driving seat - Mary Cassatt
Young Mother Sewing; Mary Cassatt 1900 Why was this young mother sewing? She was probably sewing something for a family member, or a neighbor, or to earn money for something her family needed or wanted. The most important thing, more than the work of her hands was the feelings that motivated her actions. Her actions were most likely motivated by love.
Mrs. Gardner Cassatt in Black, 1880 Mary Cassatt
