Mary Cassatt said, "There are two ways for a painter: the broad and easy one or the narrow and hard one." Though born in Pennsylvania, Cassatt studied traditional art in Europe, but was eventually influenced by the Impressionists and Japanese prints. Full-color photographs of her works, including At the Opera, demonstrate her techniques, which readers can learn to emulate. Details and interesting trivia about her pieces are called out, such as the reason the figure in Young Woman Sewing in a Garden is wearing white. Cassatt wanted other colors to be reflected on it!
