This book examines the radical experimentation and innovation of one of the finest and most creative printmakers of the 19th century. A collaborator with the Impressionists Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) made some of her greatest artistic achievements as a printmaker. Her prints reveal the personal and introspective side of an American artist who was at the center of the French art world.

Addressing themes of creativity, domesticity, motherhood, fashion, intimacy and privacy, Inside Out: The Prints of Mary Cassatt brings readers into close contact with an artist who used printmaking to consider issues of identity and selfhood in a changing modern world. This publication, which investigates the artist’s exploration of the medium over a period of two decades, also features an original pattern design by contemporary designer Frances MacLeod.
