Art HistoryMary Cassatt (American, 1844–1926), born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, spent her early years with her family in France and Germany. From 1860 to 1862, she studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia. By 1865, she had convinced her parents to let her study in Paris, where she took private lessons from leading academic painter Jean-Léon Gérôme, copied works of the old masters, and went sketching. In 1877, Edgar Degas invited her to join the group of independent artists later known as the Impressionists. Like Degas, she was chiefly interested in figure compositions.
