The Child's Bath is a breathtaking 100.3 × 66.1 cm (39 1/2 × 26 in.) oil on canvas by the American painter Mary Cassatt. Like many artists from her generation, such as James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Thomas Eakins, her colleague at the Pennsylvania Academy of Arts, Cassatt was an expatriate who achieved fame and praise in Europe. The artist became associated with the Impressionists, invited by Edgar Degas to be part of the group in 1877. Cassatt's oeuvre is unique, and her thematic choices were focused on the private lives of women. The Child's Bath is one of her masterpieces, a stunning painting showing a moment of intimacy between mother and daughter.
The Child's Bath is a colorful piece created in 1893, during Cassatt's late phase. The masterpiece was bought by the Art Institute of Chicago in 1910 and became one of its most famous artworks. Its decorative patterns and compositional point of view were strongly influenced by the Japanese Ukiyo-e prints, which had recently become extremely popular in Paris. Cassatt also has a series of etchings where the affinities with Ukiyo-e are also evident. The work's theme is relatively commonplace to Cassatt, who explored the relationship of mothers and daughters with tenderness and complexity. She was also famous for her focus on interiors, even though she created artworks based on public spaces as well.
The painting's scene was possibly inspired by a cholera outbreak in Paris at the time and advised people to bathe with more regularity to avoid the disease. This relatively banal scene seems to be inspired, as well, by religious imagery: many scholars have pointed to the similarity of the work to Madonnas and also emphasized how washing feet is an essential Biblical motif.
The Child's Bath impresses with its realistic depiction and flatness. The perspective is abolished, and the detailed treatment given to the decorative patterns on the tapestry and the wall isn't secondary, making the background and scenery just as important as the figures. Cassatt's approach to color was more subtle than most Impressionists, and her treatment of the figure is impressively realistic. The human skin was carefully painted, and she also captured the texture of hair with close attention. Her color palette here is colder: the orange and red pigments of the floor are muted, and blue tonalities are seen in many details. Looking closely, it seems that Cassatt had applied priming with an intense blue and painted another layer on top of it.
