Directed by Ali Ray

Released on International Women’s Day, this film explores Mary Cassatt’s life and legacy as an artist. She was most known for her depictions of women, frequently painted alongside their children. Critics often dismissed Cassatt, regarding her a “woman painter” because her works portrayed daily domestic life in a sentimental fashion. Director Ali Ray brings artist’s life to screen in her film Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman.

A classically trained turned radical Impressionist artist, the way she creates these paintings and pastels clashed with society’s ideas of the way women should be portrayed. The ideas she pushes forward remain relevant with many Cassat scholars and curators from across the globe coming together to discuss the ways that she helped change the landscape of how women are portrayed in art and as artists.
