This is a good movie for children & family. It gives a brief glimpse of the life of American artist Mary Cassatt: who she was, what she did, and some of her works were present in the film. This is from the HBO Family series in the 90s called The Artists' Special, meant to teach children of famous painters through the eyes of children. Having to watched this film a few times as a kid, I would definitely recommend this for young students. It would help introduce kids to the importance of art and cassatt's impact in art history.
