About the Author:

Jane O'Connor lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4-Cassatt's life and career are presented within the framework of a child's school assignment. Claire discovers the artist first through a postcard, then the Internet, and finally through a family trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The vivid illustrations are a combination of reproductions of Cassatt's work, Claire's cartoon drawings, and a few family photos. Biographical details about Cassatt's family life and relationship with Edgar Degas are simplified to the extreme; however, the author acknowledges that the artist was an intensely private woman and that little is known about her personal life. This slim, exuberant introduction to Cassatt's life and art is more appropriate for general-interest reading than for reports.
