Description:

Original lithograph printed in black ink on laid paper bearing the “MBM (FRANCE) Ingres d’Arches” watermark, and the “MBM” countermark

Signed on the stone lower right Mary Cassatt.  A superb, richly printed impression of the only state of this scarce lithograph, from the edition of unrecorded size, most probably printed with the assistance and at the studio of Auguste Clot, Paris. 

This very large study is one of only two experiments undertaken by Mary Cassatt in the medium of lithography.  It is closely related to a pastel of Sara in the same pose currently in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York (Breeskin 454).  The handling of the lithographic crayon, with a combination of pointwork and shading with the flat edge, is very similar in feeling to the artist's drawings.
