- The Print
- The Artist
“Young Mother Sewing” features Margot Lux, a child who often posed for artist Mary Cassatt, and Reine Lefebvre, a woman from a village near Cassatt’s 17th-century manor house. Cassatt (1844 – 1926) came from an affluent, cultured Pennsylvania family, engaging in simple, self-contained everyday activities like reading and sewing. Her background may have inspired this piece, which was possibly set in the conservatory of Cassatt's house. The only conventional aspect of this work is the central placement of the figures. Otherwise, it exhibits the Impressionist’s skill in capturing fleeting shadows, and the transient effects of glowing, reflected light.
Raised in an affluent family, Mary Cassatt (1844 – 1926) was one of the few 19th-century American women to become a professional artist in an era when wealthy women did not typically pursue a career. Cassatt studied in the United States, but spent most of her life in France. Mesmerized by the pastel work of Edgar Degas, she found it life-changing as she became an influential Impressionist. Children and motherhood were her principal subjects, skillfully painted with simplicity, vigorous brushwork and luminescent color. Cassatt's art is displayed in many private and public collections, including New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Washington, D.C.’s National Gallery.
