DVD Movie Review of Mary Cassatt: A Brush with Independence
Mary Cassatt's art as well as her life is very inspiring especially for the female artist. I was quite intrigued with her story as it unfolded on this DVD. Born an American, Mary Cassatt was a very independent woman and artist, a real trailblazer. She went to France alone before she turned 21 as she felt an importance in being trained in Europe where the "real" art was happening. The way she went about acquiring her art skills and building her artistic career and reputation is really inspiring for me. Her art is touching to view. Her colors, rich. The movie itself is a little dry and yet interesting and visually appealing. Mary Cassatt's story is worthy of hearing. Her art is worthy of seeing. I recommend this DVD.
