Coffee Talks with Nan Colton: Mary Cassatt

Join us for this Coffee Talk performance with Nan Colton. Mary Cassatt was one of the “les trois grandes dames” (the three great ladies) of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Berthe Morisot. Cassatt often depicted the 19th century’s “New Woman” in her paintings, and led a social life consistent with such portraits – lending works to exhibitions in support of the suffrage movement and advocating for women’s equality.

Join us as we learn more about this fascinating artist and supporter of social causes. In this presentation, she recounts her close and tumultuous friendship with Edgar Degas.
