Paintings by Mary Cassatt

The Child's Bath by Mary Cassatt, painted in 1893, demonstrates Mary Cassatt's increased interest in Japanese art in her later career. Cassatt admired Utamaro, a late 18th-century ukiyo-e master who was renowned for his portrayal of the private lives of women going about their daily activities.

'The Child's Bath' by Mary Cassatt, influenced by Japanese wood block prints. 1893. At the time she created this painting, the high vantage point, tight cropping of the forms, and bold outline were all unconventional artistic devices.
