I took this particular picture at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and found the contrast of the old lady painting the two little girls very interesting.
Mary Cassat (the painter of the original) was an impressionist painter famous for creating works with subjects as children and mothers. She was one of the early impressionists to move away from traditional subjects to painting bourgeois people with natural poses.
Children playing on a beach is most probably a very personal piece for Mary as she has two little girls who are possibly related. Mary had lost her sister and was deeply affected by the loss.

A little loosey goosey sunset. I think I love seascapes so much because the sky can take on any color the eye can see and so can the ocean. It allows me a freedom to paint any color scheme I am feeling in the moment. This is a little 6x6 inch canvas. It is available ✌

Japanese prints had a significant influence to impressionist artists in the mid 1800’s when Japan opened to international trade and Japanese art began trickling into Paris. This was called Japonisme. In Degas’ work here, his series of paintings of bathers was drawn from a Japanese print of a Japanese courtesan bathing in a tub. He absorbed the compositional style, cropping, and angles and painted them in an impressionist mode. It was a Parisian affair with Japanese art. 🇯🇵 “Woman Seated on the Edge of a Bath Sponging Her Neck”, oil and essence on paper on canvas, 1880-95. This piece is from the Musee d’Orsay, Paris, and saw it at the Degas Retrospective in Houston. #impressionist #degas #japonisme
