a sweet life

mary cassatt came from a wealthy american family. after studying art in her native pittsburgh she settled in paris. she obtained a permit to paint within the walls of the louvre museum where many of her fellow impressionists gathered. what a life! she had many private teachers including charles chaplin. her work is so beautiful. today her paintings are worth millions.

enriching and worth the wealth. she did the right thing. fate begot privileged but she sought richness in beauty instead of materialistic squander.
