Arts Everyday Living: The Art of Tranquility—Mary Cassatt & Childhood Memories

 

 

THE ART OF TRANQUILITY

THROUGH AN ARTIST’S EYES 

Are you sometimes nostalgic for childhood? Do you remember the peaceful transition between consciousness and sleep, leaving the waking world behind until the next morning. Drowsy, weary, nearly dreaming, lulled by the comfort of a warm bath and a familiar lap. American Impressionist Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) immortalized those special moments in works like Mother and Child, a theme which has earned her international fame.
