The Art of the Cup

Teacup from Breakfast in Bed by Cassatt

Since we seem to be working on a theme this week, purely by chance, I thought I’d round up the blog with a painting by Mary Cassatt from 1897, entitled Breakfast in Bed. The photo above is the detail of just the cup, which actually looks rather unfinished and rough. But when you see it in the context of the entire painting, it works (see below). Mary Cassatt was not taken seriously by her peers; you know, that “woman thing,” but her paintings are lovely and replete with lush colors and depth. Enjoy this one, and think about indulging yourself in a little reclining repast.
