Child In A Straw Hat is an impressive 65.3 x 49.2 cm (25 11/16 x 19 3/8 in.) oil on canvas by the American painter Mary Cassatt. The original artwork now belongs to the National Gallery of Art and is dated from 1886. Cassatt was an important artist from the 19th-century, centering her paintings around women, their activities in domestic interiors, and their role in the family structure. Cassatt was deeply admired for her manner, having an ambiguous yet life-long friendship with Edgar Degas. Degas often recognized her talent but always directed diminishing remarks at her. Child In A Straw Hat is a captivating portrait of a girl with a shy expression, painted with muted colors and realistic treatment.
This is a simple but captivating portrait painting featuring a small girl standing and wearing a straw hat. For the background, Cassatt painted an almost uniform wall with a warm green-grey. The girl has a subtle shy or worried expression on her face and is looking to the right of the viewer’s perspective. One of her hands is holding the other while her light blue dress was painted with fluid and gestural brushstrokes. A common trait from Cassat is her use of broad brushes. Even though the skin and anatomy of the figure were painted in a realistic way, observing up close, it’s possible to see the painterly marks in her arms and face. The girl is blond, and her hair color is similar to the hat.
Mary Cassatt was born in Pennsylvania into a wealthy family, and she was presented with high culture and art very early in her life. She had classes in French and German and also drawing and music lessons very early. Entering the Pennsylvania Academy of Art when she was 15, Cassatt was upset with the institutions’ methods, finding them rigid and unrewarding. She eventually convinced her parents to let her move to Paris, where she completed her studies.
While Cassatt had a rather good reception in France at first, during the 1870s, she felt the social restrictions that many women artists faced at the time, with her works rarely being chosen to participate in exhibitions. This changed after Degas invited her to be part of the Impressionists in 1877, who organized their own shows.
