Catalogue

Mary Cassatt: A New Catalogue Raisonné represents nearly 20 years of work on the part of the Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné Committee to revise and update the original catalogue of the artist's work, Adelyn Dohme Breeskin's Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Oils, Pastels, Watercolors, and Drawings (Washington, D.C.: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1970).

The new Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné, unlike Breeskin's volume, does not at this time include counterproofs or drawings. Nor does it include prints, which were documented by Breeskin in The Graphic Work of Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné (New York: H. Bittner, 1948) and in the revised edition Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Graphic Work (Washington, D.C.: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1979).

Some of the works in Breeskin's Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Oils, Pastels, Watercolors, and Drawings do not appear in Mary Cassatt: A New Catalogue Raisonné for one of the following reasons:

a) The Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné Committee has determined that the work does not appear to be consistent with the artist’s hand.

b) The Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné Committee has some doubt that the work is consistent with the artist’s hand and has not located the work itself or found sufficient information to determine that the work should be included in this catalogue.

c) The Breeskin catalogue raisonné (1970) entry is incomplete. That is, the Breeskin entry lacks a photograph of the work and enough information to match this entry to a known work.

d) The Breeskin catalogue raisonné (1970) entry is redundant. That is, the image in the Breeskin entry is a detail of another work; or the Breeskin entry lacks a photograph of the work, and the information in the entry can be matched to another work illustrated in the Breeskin catalogue.

Mary Cassatt: A New Catalogue Raisonné also includes a number of works that are not found in Breeskin's Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Oils, Pastels, Watercolors, and Drawings.

The project to revise and update Breeskin's Mary Cassatt: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Oils, Pastels, Watercolors, and Drawings has been undertaken by agreement with the Breeskin heirs. The catalogue project is sponsored by Adelson Galleries, New York.
