Little Girl in a Blue Armchair stands as a testament to the newly formed relationship between Mary Cassatt and the impressionists, and to her assimilation of a freer style of painting. With a limited palette and vibrant brushstroke, she created a dynamic interplay of forms that is echoed in this captured moment between rest and play.

Light enters the picture through the French doors in the background and enlivens the texture and pattern of the inanimate objects in the room. The tilted picture plane draws attention to the haphazard arrangement of the four large, blue chairs, and the brownish-gray floor in between them is painted with an energetic brushwork that gives it a life of its own. In contrast, the little girl—flopped on a chair in a moment of boredom or exhaustion—and the small dog are in a state of utter repose.

Cassatt reworked the painting with the help of her friend Edgar Degas and exhibited it along with 10 other paintings in her debut exhibition with the impressionists in 1879.

Order the item material you would like to have

The product dropdown menu gives you the possibility to choose your prefered material and size. We allow yout to choose among the following variants:

  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating on top): A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is sometimes labelled as a UV print on plexiglass, transforms an artwork into brilliant home decoration. The major upside of a plexiglass fine art copy is that contrasts and granular painting details become visible with the help of the granular gradation. The real glass coating protects your selected art replica against sunlight and heat for between 40-60 years.
  • Aluminium dibond print (metal): An Aluminium Dibond print is a material with an impressive depth, creating a modern look thanks to a non-reflective surface structure. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the best introduction to art replicas made with aluminum. For our Aluminium Dibond print, we print the chosen artwork right on the surface of the aluminum composite. The print on aluminium is one of the most popular entry-level products and is a truly contemporary way to showcase art reproductions, because it draws attention on the image.
  • Canvas: The UV printed canvas material applied on a wood frame. It makes the sculptural effect of three-dimensionality. Your printed canvas of your favorite artwork will let you turn your art print into a large artwork. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy to hang your Canvas print without the help of additional wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all types of walls.
  • The poster print (canvas material): A poster print is a UV printed sheet of canvas with a granular texture on the surface. It is best suited for putting your art copy using a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm round about the painting, which facilitates the framing.
