Eve's Daughter / Modern Woman: A Mural by Mary Cassatt
2004·Urbana and Chicago
by Webster, Sally
Urbana and Chicago: University of Illinois Press, 2004. Hardcover. VG (Few interior marks as ex-gallery owner, otherwise clean with little wear.). Amish blue cloth, gilt letters on spine, blue & color illus. dust jacket, 156 pp., BW illus. "Often regarded as merely the creator of sentimental images of mothers and children or an expatriate heavily influence by impressionism, Mary Cassatt is not typically regarded as an artist of radical convictions. [This book] reevaluates these dismissals with a historical, aesthetic, and symbolist analysis of Cassatt's unique venture into the male-dominated realm of large-scale mural painting, Modern Woman. Commissioned for the Woman's Building at Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, Modern Woman also stood as a personal and professional manifesto. This book undertakes a complete overview of Cassatt's mural, synthesizing a wide variety of interpretations and original observations to present the first complete treatment of the work." (dj).
