Thank you! Oliveira My Name is Mary Sutter , draws from research and imagination to recreate the years when two impressionists—Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas—engaged in an on-again, off-again relationship. Cassatt, the daughter of well-to-do Philadelphians, is a determined woman whose first stay in Paris is interrupted by the Franco-Prussian War. However, an arranged meeting with admirer Degas and his invitation to exhibit with a group of independent artists are all the incentives Cassatt needs to stay. Often at odds, they send missives back and forth. Cassatt discovers a passion for vivid colors and embarks upon a productive period painting women and children; Degas studies the human form and strives to replicate his observations in his paintings and other renderings of ballerinas.

By dallasnews Administrator. The story begins at the end, with an aged Mary Cassatt — famed painter of intimate scenes of mothers and children — searching her tiny, crowded studio for a cache of letters exchanged between herself and Edgar Degas. With her sight nearly gone and all her friends and immediate family long dead, Cassatt is the lone survivor of a group that put an indelible stamp on Western art. Cassatt and Degas are at the center of I Always Loved You , circling around each other in a delicate dance of art, inspiration and a relationship that no one can define. He helped her find a new way of painting and invited her to exhibit with the impressionists — or independents, as they preferred to be called. Degas was also dealing with declining vision. The black sun.
