I love Impressionist art...especially Monet. I was looking at some prints on-line and came across this one. I remember studying Cassatt while doing my junior year abroad in France (1990-91). This one caught my eye b/c it reminds me of Matthew. I have to wash his feet every morning to remove the nightly Glutathione cream. I put him on my lap and wash them in a bucket with warm water. (It's a lot less time consuming than putting him in the tub while we are rushing to get ready for school!)

Mary Cassatt - La Toilette (1891)
Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American artist known as a "painter of mothers and children". Mary did most of her work in France where she met and painted with artists such as Monet, Pissarro, and Degas. She was the only American (and one of only three women) to exhibit with the Impressionists in Paris.
