Mary Cassatt at The Mona Bismarck Foundation

By Lauren Hasty

For the first time in over 100 years, over 60 prints and drawings by the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt can be seen at The Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture (MBAC).

The exhibition, Mary Cassatt in Paris: Prints & Drawings from the Ambroise Vollard Collection, is one of the most exciting on display this fall in the French capital. The renowned art dealer Ambroise Vollard, who courted and endorsed such 20th century masters as Picasso and Cezanne, was struck by Cassatt’s talent and thus acquired the young woman’s entire studio collection and kept them until his death. The Mona Bismarck American Center for Art & Culture is housed in the lovely hotel particular on the banks of the Seine in the 16th district, which served as the former residence of the American socialite Mona von Bismarck.
