Little Girl in Blue Armchair c. 1878
In Degas, Cassatt found a life long friend and equal with whom she could share her thoughts and opinions about art and life. And in this group of artists she could flourish in creating art the way she wanted. Cassatt's work in Impressionism stands out because of her focus on women and children together. She was able to capture some intimate moments that were absolutely tender and charming.
