Mary Cassatt, Impressionist

This stunning Mary Cassatt is a great example of putting the minute details into that which you want the viewer to focus in on first.  Note the beautiful detail on the mother’s face and how brushy the child’s face is.  First you look at the mother, then take in the child.  Yes, that kid’s eyes are downright scary close up, but when you get back, you see all the reflective, bright wonder found in a child’s eyes. Beautiful.  Collection our own Museum of Fine Arts Houston. 

I absolutely adore seeing the brushstrokes.
