Mary Cassatt   

1     Mary Cassatt is one of the first great female American painters. She followed her dreams and became an artist. She was born on May 22, 1844, and lived in Europe for several years as a child.
 
2     Her family returned to the United States and, at age 16, Mary attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Four years later she decided she couldn't learn any more in Philadelphia, so her parents let her return to Europe. There she studied the techniques of the masters in Rome, Seville, Antwerp, and Paris.
 
3     Mary received the chance of a lifetime in 1877 when the famous French painter, Edgar Degas, asked her to join a group of painters that included now-famous artists like Monet, Manet, and Renoir. Their style of painting is called Impressionism. They used primary colors and short brush strokes in their work. They recognized Mary's kindred spirit and powerful talent and invited her to exhibit in the Impressionist art shows.
