Cassatt The Childs Bath

Mary Cassatt, The Child's Bath, 1893, Art Institute of Chicago. Detail photos Rachel Cohen.

Today, I am thinking about loving a child, and worrying about them.

Over the last few years, I have spent a fair amount of time with this painting, seeing it sometimes with our children, sometimes by myself.

Every part of it is full of understanding.
