    Mary Cassatt was the only American artist to exhibit with the original Impressionist group. This sensitive portrayal of a mother and child reflects the most advanced 19th-century ideas about raising children. Scientists and physicians of the day encouraged mothers (instead of wet nurses and nannies) to care for their children and to include regular bathing in their hygiene practices to prevent disease. #5WomenArtists See three paintings by Mary Cassatt now on view: Image: [Now on view in Gallery 273] Mary Cassatt. The Child's Bath, 1893. Robert A. Waller Fund.

    NEW ON VIEW—Tsugouharu Foujita, a Japanese–born artist who moved to France in 1913, depicts Emily Crane Chadbourne in this remarkable portrait, back on view for the first time since the opening of the Modern Wing. Chadbourne was the grandniece of Martin Ryerson—one of the Art Institute’s single greatest donors—and a generous benefactor to the museum in her own right. Chadbourne moved to Europe in the early 1900s, where she collected works from some of the greatest avant-garde artists of the time, including Gauguin and Matisse, as well as objects from China, Japan, and India. She would eventually give hundreds of works to the Art Institute, including this portrait by Foujita. See Tsugouharu Foujita’s Portrait of Emily Crane Chadbourne (1922) on view in Gallery 394.
