commentary

Counterproofs after this work exist.

Joanne Diotte Uris (1900–1985) was the wife of Percy C. Uris (1899–1971), who with his brother Harold (1905–1982) owned Uris Buildings Corporation, a prominent investment building company in New York City. Important Uris-built-and-owned projects include 300 Park Avenue (Colgate-Palmolive Building) and 488 Madison Avenue (Look Building).

The Breeskin catalogue raisonné (1970) contained only 943 works. All Breeskin numbers above 943 listed on this site were created by the Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné Committee for record-keeping purposes and do not correspond to works in the Breeskin catalogue.
