Cassatt, Mary (1844-1926)

Autumn

1880

Oil on canvas

93 x 65 cm

In this century the love for natural harmony was still in respect. Cassat expresses it in the form of a lady not really looking happy, clad in beautiful colors expressing the autumn season. Does she have a man? Is she looking for one? Not at the moment. The contemplation of the serious of autumn to find the beauty of its colors and meditative melancholia (with the help of a book maybe) dominates.
