Exhibition On Screen

Women's History Month

Despite being a prolific painter of women, Mary Cassatt detested being described as a ‘woman painter’. Delighted a full house at its premiere at the 2022 Chichester Film Festival.

In Detail

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.

Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often-overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals - the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely rewritten.

Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.
