Mary Cassatt - Lydia leaning on her arms, sitting in a loge - 1879
I chose this piece by Mary Cassatt because I like the color choice, precision and detail that is incorporated into the piece. The cooler background "pushes" the woman out towards you and separates her from the background. The dark red and blues next to her also focuses the eye on her as well. Finally, her precision and use of the pastel incorporates into the detail one can see in this work by Cassatt.
