Sip tea and savor creamy scones while a Mary Cassatt expert discusses the only American artist to be officially incorporated into the Impressionist movement. In celebration of a special loan of Cassatt’s The Cup of Tea from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and complemented by a new installation of works by the artist from the McNay’s holdings, learn about the artist who paid tribute to the feminine experience in her depictions of everyday life.
