The Story

Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) was an American painter and printmaker. At the age of 15, over the objections of her family, she began her art training at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In 1865, impatient with the academy’s restrictive and patronizing environment for female students, she decided to travel abroad to study painting in Paris and explore the museums of Europe.



Settling permanently in France in 1874, Cassatt exhibited at the Paris Salon, where she met Edgar Degas who invited her to join the Impressionists and was to become her friend and mentor. “I accepted with joy,” she said. “I took leave of conventional art. I began to live.”



Cassatt’s technique changed greatly under the influence of the Impressionists. Best known for her contemporary scenes of mothers and children, Lilacs in a Window is one of her rare still lifes. Our delightful vase features a detail of the softly textured brush strokes that describe the delicate purple and white spring blossoms.

    Pretty & Practical

    Love these”clever” vases. Open up, add water, twinkling light and flowers. Then, when the flowers fade, you just flatten the vase and store anywhere you want. Who doesn’t have a shelf full of empty vases? In my last order, I entered an incorrect shipping address. When I realized my mistake, I emailed their customer service and received an immediate response from Stefani McCullough. She corrected my error and I received my beautiful vase quickly! Thank you to the entire Modgy team!
