American artist Mary Cassatt created pieces that make a beautiful addition to any home. Her elegant depictions of everyday life are captured perfectly in these hand-painted reproductions available at overstockArt. Each one uses the light color palette and loose brushwork for which Cassatt is so well-known.
In Cassatt's art, domestic scenes are given a thoughtful treatment. Many of her works focus on children or the bond between mother and child. She continued to focus on these everyday settings despite her work often being disregarded as feminine. Due to her considerable technical skill and psychological insight into her subject matter, she was eventually lauded by critics as a great artist of her time.
Today, the elegant simplicity and delicate tones used in her work add lightness to any space. Her scenes with mother and child are especially popular for use in nurseries and other child-friendly spaces. And because each piece is carefully reproduced by hand on a real canvas, they are just as striking as Cassatt's original works of art.
