Mary Cassatt was an American painter who spent most of her adult life in France among other notable French Impressionist painters like Degas and Monet. She is known for her images of the social and private lives of women and especially famous for her tender portraits of mothers and their children.

In this short video, viewers of all ages will enjoy a combination of fine art and cartoon fun. Why didn’t Mary’s father want her to become an artist? What turned Mary and her friend Edgar Degas into “mad scientists”? What made her huge World’s Fair mural so mysterious? You will find out as you laugh and learn with one of the world’s best-loved artists.

Humorous cartoon animation lightens the mood and makes the film appealing to a young audience. Mary Cassatt shares the story of her life growing up as an artist, how she developed her style and captured her subject matter, and how she became famous through her work.
