Why name a cafe after Mary Cassatt?
Cassatt's is a gallery for local artists that offers art classes as well as being a Kiwi Cafe!
And yes, this Mary Cassatt really is the American impressionist who painted with Monet, Manet, Degas, and the other French impressionists. Click here for more on Mary Cassatt.
Many of our artists evoke the style of Mary Cassatt and the impressionists in their work
