Cassatt, one of the two women and the only American to show with the Impressionists, was born in Pittsburgh. She was the daughter of a millionaire and spent her childhood in Europe with her family. After the Cassatt’s returned to live in Philadelphia, Mary studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art until she was 23. She eventually left for Europe to study further and visit Italy, Spain, and Belgium before going to Paris where the sight of a pastel by Degas changed her life.
