You have me stumped. I can't think of anymore to add to your list. I'll have to stew on this.

I love the film made about the life of Mary Cassatt titled Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist. My daughter and I watched it, and I was thrilled months later when we walked through a museum and she spotted a Cassatt on the wall!

I also just ran across Frida, about Frida Khalo, the Mexican painter.

Now I understand her painting so much better. What a tragic character she was.
