Gabrielle Gaulin, Hill-Stead Education Specialist, will talk about the renowned
artist Mary Cassatt, the lasting importance of her work, her relationship with
Farmington's Pope Family, and the museum's collection of Cassatt's paintings.
Born in America in 1844, Cassatt lived most of her adult
life in France where she became one of the leading artists in the Impressionist
movement. Art historian Walter Pach said of Cassatt "Of all the American
artists who can be associated with Impressionism, the most important and the
most celebrated is Miss Mary Cassatt."
