Although Edgar Degas's influence upon Mary Cassatt has long been acknowledged, the extent to which Cassatt shaped Degas's artistic production and prepared the way for his warm reception by American audiences is fully examined for the first time. With a focus on the critical period from the late 1870s through the mid-1880s when Degas and Cassatt were most closely allied, this catalog brings together some 70 works in a variety of media to examine the artistic dialogue that developed between these two celebrated impressionists. Groundbreaking technical analysis provides new insight into the intersections within their art in terms of media, methods, and subject matter.
