Little girl in a blue armchair

Mary Cassat is an unconventional and rebel American painter, she loves to paint scenes of daily life of the women of her time, giving particular attention to the strong bond that is established between mothers and daughters. In this work she depicts a girl sitting in a blue armchair. Her legs slightly ajar, her face sulky and her arm behind her head give the idea that the girl is in a moment of rebellion and in disagreement with a thought. The "whimsical" attitude of the girl fully reflects the intolerance of the artist Mary Cassat to the traditions.

The original work is dated 1878 and is kept at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, USA. Mary Cassat is an unconventional and rebel American painter, she loves to paint scenes of daily life of the women of her time, giving particular attention to the strong bond that is established between mothers and daughters. In this work she depicts a girl sitting in a blue armchair. Her legs slightly ajar, her face sulky and her arm behind her head give the idea that the girl is in a moment of rebellion and in disagreement with a thought. The "whimsical" attitude of the girl fully reflects the intolerance of the artist Mary Cassat to the traditions. The rude attitude with which she represents the child is considered so offensive by the critic that, during the exhibition of the Salon des Artistes in Paris, they refuse to expose her painting. Around 1877, a time of great artistic difficulty, she is invited by Degas, one of the leading exponents of Impressionism, to exhibit her works. Big admirer of the French painter for several years, she loves above all his technique of colour drafting. Exposed in the window of a gallerist, Degas’ pastels deeply move her and talking about him, she says: "I used to crush my nose against that window and absorb all that I could of his art. This has changed my life. At that moment I saw the art as I wanted it to be". Under the guidance of Degas, Cassat becomes an expert in the use of colour and for a period the two began to attend each other even in their private lives. The idyll did not last long and after a quarrel with the painter, Mary decides, a few years later, to embark on a trip to Egypt. She is struck by a serious illness that makes her almost blind and, not without having fought to defend her profession, she is forced to stop painting despite herself.
