As a young woman, Mary Cassatt left Philadelphia for Paris and went on to change the art world. Mary Cassatt: A Brush With Independence is the extraordinary story of a woman who defied tradition, a painter whose work captivated Edgar Degas, and the only American asked to join the French Impressionists. Best remembered for her tender yet unsentimental depictions of mothers and children, Cassatt was also a driving force for women's suffrage and other issues of her day. Travel to the Paris that Cassatt knew, as her lush paintings light up the screen in this documentary produced and directed by Emmy-winner Jackson Frost.
This program, taped in high-definition television (HDTV), is based on an exhibition organized by The Art Institute of Chicago in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
