From Art Journal, “Mary Cassatt’s Images of Women:”
"Cassatt critics in particular have overlooked the content of her art,
not only because of blind spots about the politics of gender, but also because as a female artist, Cassatt herself does not conform to standard male images of women.
Cassatt’s art offers a new vision of the unconsidered facts of everyday bourgeois life, because she defined her world through women. In fact, after her student days, her subjects were nearly exclusively female. Cassatt’s was a woman-centered art because she conceived of women as complete within themselves. As she said referring to her mural Modern Woman (1893; lost) “An American friend asked me in a rather huffy [affronted] tone the other day, ‘Then this is woman apart from her relationships to man?’ I told him it was.” Out of this stance she created inspiring and realistic new images of women, and also gave traditional image-types, particularly the mother and child, a new dimension. “
I like the idea that mermaids lure men to their deaths but fall in love with women and help them become mermaids and all mermaids are like beautiful sea lesbians
Happy birthday to Piet Mondrian, who was born in Amersfoort, Netherlands in 1872! Mondrian is best known as the creator of perhaps the most rigorously abstract paintings of the first half of the twentieth century. Working with only the most basic elements-straight lines and primary colors, he strove to create pure objective art that he believed would change the world.
