Reading "Le Figaro," c. 1877–78

Literature

Scope of the Material
The Mary Cassatt Catalogue Raisonné Committee has attempted to locate as many published references to specific oil paintings, pastels, and watercolors by Mary Cassatt as possible. In some catalogue projects, the authors include only those references they deem most important; in others, all references discovered by the authors are included. In the case of this catalogue raisonné, almost all references found by the Cassatt Committee have been listed as part of the literature archive, regardless of length or significance, with the exception of a few examples, among them literature intended for children and non–art historical appearances such as Cassatt images used to illustrate corporate reports.

This task of locating published references to Cassatt's images has been both assisted by and made more daunting by the Internet. On the one hand, the Committee has been able to find many rare materials using online databases and catalogues. On the other hand, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the amount of material added to the Internet each day. At present, many digital resources have been consulted only in reference to specific questions. Comprehensive searches encompassing every reference to Cassatt in certain digital sources, when deemed necessary, will be completed at a later date.
