Mary Cassat art work inspires Google
Google celebrates the birthday of American Impressionist painter Mary Cassat today, with a Google Doodle logo on their homepage.
Mary Cassat was born May 22, 1844 in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, and died June 14 1926 near Paris at the age of 82.
She is best known for her paintings of women and children, that are tender but not overly sentimental. She was friends with Edgar Degas and she exhibited among the Impressionists in Paris beginning in 1877.
The Mary Cassatt painting in the Google logo is "The Child's Bath" from 1893. It is owned by the Art Institute of Chicago.
