  • Mary Cassatt’s “Young Mother Sewing” may be suggestive of the artist’s daily activities growing up in an affluent, cultured family. The painting features Margot Lux, a child who often posed for Cassatt, and Reine Lefebvre, a woman who lived near Cassatt’s 17th-century manor house, which is thought to be the setting for this artwork. The work utilizes conventional central placement of the figures, but is otherwise alive with Cassatt’s Impressionistic ability to capture the fleeting effects of shadows and glowing light.
