Photographer's Note

Sometimes we made stupid things. Here we were at on the third floor of NYC Public Library. I was taking photos in this pretty hall when I saw this lonly woman crying. I took photos, but didn't note the title on the door "Daring Methods: The Prints of Mary Cassat". So after the photos we went out fron this floor.

Now searching in the web I see that door lead to a exposition of the work of Mary Cassatt (1844–1926). She was an American painter and printmaker and lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.
She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of "les trois grandes dames" of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Berthe Morisot.

This expostion was displayed from March 8, 2013 through June 23, 2013 (according with the NYC library site). So no chance to see the exposition again. Brenda tell me the exposition continues!

A pdf archive with some works of Mary Cassatt can be seen on the Library link below:

the stupid thing I sad above, was not visit this exposition.
