Works by Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt usually reside in separate French and American wings of an art museum, and rarely ever do their paintings hang together.Now the National Gallery of Art is studying how these impressionists influenced each other while working in Paris and how Cassatt introduced Degas to American audiences. During an extensive cleaning and analysis of Cassatt's painting "Little Girl in a Blue Armchair," the museum used x-rays and infrared imagery to reveal changes Degas made under the surface of Cassatt's picture.Cassatt later wrote about her work with Degas.Degas' influence on Cassatt is widely known in the art world, but Cassatt's role in shaping Degas' work has been more of a mystery.
