Mary Cassatt was an American artist who spent most of her adult life in Paris and exhibited with the iconic Impressionists.  The theme of her works were often the private lives of women and the intimate bonds between mothers and children.

Because she was a woman, Cassatt could not study at the illustrious Ecole des Beaux-Arts, so she hired distinguished artists as personal instructors to hone her prodigious talent.  Edgar Degas noticed her work, befriending her and encouraging her as an artist.  It is said he observed that it was impossible to believe a woman could draw so well.  Not suprisingly, Cassatt was an active participant in the women’s sufferage movement.

The Bath, c. 1892.  Collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Raphael was born on April 6 1483.  He died on his birthday 37 years later.  Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael forms the revered artistic trinity of the Italian Renaissance.  The Sistine Madonna was Raphael’s final painting, and the winged angels beneath Mary are the most famous (and incessantly reproduced) cherubs in the world.  Even Lisa Confetti couldn’t resist them.
