Exhibition Label:
The American impressionist Mary Cassatt spent her career in Europe, settling in Paris. Stifled by tradition, she regarded her exposure to the work of Edgar Degas in 1874 as a "turning point in my artistic life." After her rejection by the Paris Salon of 1877, Cassatt welcomed Degas's invitation to exhibit with the impressionists in 1879. Cassatt shared their interest in the depiction of modern life and their commitment to developing innovative methods to capture fleeting moments. A lifelong friend of Degas, she served as model for him on a number of occasions. Despite her high regard for his work, Cassatt later dismissed this portrayal, commenting: "It has artistic qualities but is so painful and represents me as a person so repugnant that I would not wish it to be known that I posed for it."

Description:
Mary Cassatt spent a few months in Spain in the early 1870s. She went first to Madrid, where she copied the paintings of the Spanish masters, then established a studio in Seville. She made a series of paintings of Spanish life that emphasized the beauty and dress of the local women. This piece was exhibited at the 1874 Paris Salon under the title Ida, where it attracted the attention of French impressionist Edgar Degas. On seeing the work of Cassatt for the first time, Degas commented, “C’est vrai. Voilá quelqu’un qui sent comme moi” (It is true. There is someone who feels as I do).
