The social lives of Cassatt's women

The Mint Museum will offer free shuttle service between Mint Museum Randolph and Mint Museum Uptown on Friday and Saturday. Admission to the Mint is valid for both locations for two days from the date of purchase.

At Mint Randolph, 2730 Randolph Road, the museum has organized a small spotlight show - "Mary Cassatt's Madame X: A Masterpiece from the Charlotte and Philip Hanes Collection," which will present period fashions and decorative objects from the artist's era.

"Madame X Dressed for the Matinée" (1878) comes from the collection of Charlotte and Philip Hanes of Winston-Salem, who have placed it on long-term loan at the Mint.

Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she became the only American artist (and one of only five women) to exhibit alongside the French Impressionists.

Known for her sensitive depictions of mothers and their children, many of Cassatt's works examined the social and private lives of women.
