National Women’s History Month 

National Women’s History Month celebrates the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields including Arts, Leadership, Science and Sports.

Although women artists have been involved in the making of art throughout history, their work, when compared to that of their male counterparts, has been often obfuscated, overlooked, and undervalued. Many of their works have been wrongly attributed to male artists. Women in art have been faced with challenges due to gender biases in the mainstream fine art world. They have often encountered difficulties in training, travelling, and trading their work, as well as gaining recognition.   

Mary Cassatt (American, 1844–1926) 

One of three female artists and the only American officially associated with Impressionism, Mary Cassatt was also an invaluable adviser, helping introduce European art to major collectors in the United States. Cassatt strongly believed that painting needed to reflect modern life. Her modern woman is expertly rendered in the 1878 painting In the Loge, the first Impressionist work the artist exhibited in the United States.
