The modern subject matter, odd viewpoint, and blurred detail of this painting make it strikingly different from those of Cassatt’s American contemporaries. Though born and raised in Pennsylvania, Cassatt traveled to France for additional artistic training and remained there for the rest of her life. In Paris she took up the radical stylistic innovations of the Impressionists, becoming the only American invited to join their ranks.
