Derry Noyes chose artwork by Mary Cassatt for this third issuance in the American Treasures Series. Known especially for her figure studies and engaging portrayals of mothers and children, Mary Cassatt was the only American ever invited to exhibit with the French Impressionists.

The Postal Service issued 37-cent Mary Cassatt commemorative stamps in a pressure-sensitive adhesive double-sided book of twenty stamps on August 7, 2003, in Columbus, Ohio. The stamps, designed by Derry Noyes, Washington, DC, went on sale nationwide August 8, 2003.
