The Montgomery Museum of Fine Art continues our partnership with the Capri Theatre to present the Exhibition on Screen series.

The film will be introduced by Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, Senior Curator at MMFA.
About the Film
Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art.
The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.
