American painter, Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), became known as a leading figure in the French Impressionist movement. Cassatt’s artistic career led her from her birthplace in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to bohemian Paris where she was encouraged by her mentor and fellow impressionist artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917), becoming the only female American artist to have exhibited with the impressionists.
