Mary Cassatt"In art, what we want is the certainty that one spark of original genius shall not be extinguished."
Portrait of the Artist c. 1878
Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
In 1866, Mary finally got the opportunity to study abroad, but even then the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts would not accept female students. Cassatt was also let down by the Salon and the conservatism of the Paris art world in general. After spending time studying and refining her techniques throughout the rest of Europe, Cassatt returned to Paris once aga
Abandoned ChapelThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together
by silk spindles;
cobwebs align them like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in an broken window
against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic
against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
