Mary Cassatt: Nurse Reading to a Little Girl

I chose this piece from Mary Cassatt because it seemed slightly unrefined. The nurse's right shoulder appears squared off instead of round like the left shoulder. Also, the nurse and the child look very similar, but I do not think it was intended for them to be related. The apparent imperfections in this piece give it a lot of character and I think they improve it at the same time.
