Art. 19th century American Women artists. They were the pioneers, other women came later. The female world was always attached to art.

Today, Elizabeth Jane Gardner and Mary Cassatt on Yareah magazine.

Elizabeth Jane Gardner Bouguereau. She was born on October 4, 1837 in Exeter, New Hampshire, USA.

She arrived in Paris in 1864 and began studying contemporary and old-master paintings. In 1868, she was one of the first American women to exhibit at the Paris Salon, along with Mary Cassatt.

Religious, historical, and mythological subject matter dominated her art production at first. Afterwards, she made her own way by producing works in a monumental style following her husband ideas. She married French artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau in 1896. A happy couple!

Anyway, her paintings are so tender. Here, an example. Don’t you love it!

“I know I am censured for not more boldly asserting my individuality, but I would rather be known as the best imitator of Bouguereau than be nobody!” Elizabeth Jane Gardner.

American women artists. The imprudent by Elizabeth Gardner

Mary Cassatt was born on May 22, 1844 Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, which is now part of Pittsburgh. She was a painter and printmaker.

The same as Elizabeth Jane Gardner, she lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists.

Mary Cassatt created gorgeous images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.

Incredible artist!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you! Summer is exciting!

“I used to go and flatten my nose against that window and absorb all I could of his art. It changed my life. I saw art then as I wanted to see it.” Mary Cassatt.
