One of Mary Cassatt’s numerous images exploring the relationship between mothers and children, this etching reveals the artist’s equal facility with the drypoint process as well as with her traditional pastels. One of the members of the impressionists, Cassatt was a pioneer in adopting many of the stylistic innovations of Japanese prints, such as the minimalism of this etching’s composition.
