Mary Stevenson Cassatt was an American painter and printmaker.
In the picture there are two children in the beach. The lighting is often the most important think in the Impressionism. The horizon is very high. There is a special attention to the chill of excitement and subtleties of female psychology. The colors are soft. She painted en plein air.
She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of "les trois grandes dames" of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Berthe Morisot.
