In “Breakfast in Bed,” Mary Cassatt delved into the profound and often challenging relationship between mother and child. Painted with Cassatt’s Impressionistic broken brushstrokes and vivid colors, mothers and children were the subjects of many of her works. This piece conveys a powerfully emotional moment in which a mother embraces her child, while the child’s attention wanders elsewhere. Cassatt (1844 – 1926) subtly illustrated the tensions between parents and children by contrasting the mother’s prone position, protective hold and gaze with her child’s curiosity about the surrounding world.
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.
