Mary Cassatt, Woman with a Sunflower, c. 1905, oil on canvas, Chester Dale Collection, 1963.10.98

American artist Mary Cassatt is best known for her sensitive portrayals of women and children. This talk discusses Woman with a Sunflower, a 1905 image of domesticity, placing the painting in the context of Cassatt’s art, her personal advocacy for women’s rights, and the broader social movement for woman suffrage.
