Mary Cassatt's 1901 pastel "Simone in a White Bonnet," on loan from a private collection, will be on view at the Worcester Art Museum as part of a small, focused installation. As this work reveals, the medium of pastel was exceptionally well suited to Cassatt's Impressionist predilections for indistinct outlines and luminous color. Paired with "Reine Lefebvre Holding a Nude Baby"-the Museum's celebrated Cassatt from the same period-this installation highlights the artist's mastery of different mediums, as she shifted between oil painting and pastel toward the end of her career.
