MARY CASSATT (1844-1926), Children Playing with a Dog, signed ‘Mary Cassatt’ (lower center), oil on canvas, 39 3/8 x 28 3/4 in. (100 x 73 cm.), Painted in 1907, Image Source: Christie’s

“An exceptional example of the American Impressionist Mary Cassatt’s famed depictions of motherhood, Children Playing with a Dog presents the unconditional love and complex relationship between a mother and her two children with both psychological and stylistic finesse. While the Madonna and Child has a long historical precedent, Cassatt transformed the subject into her own signature theme. Employing the Impressionist style she developed alongside her close friend Edgar Degas while living in Paris, she evades the overly sentimental, representing familial intimacy with a modern flair.”
