To Sell Cassatt Painting
HARVARD UNIVERSITY - Harvard University Art Museums officials have
decided to sell a valuable Mary Cassatt oil painting, Mother
and Two Children, but some criticize the decision as one driven
solely by financial gain. Initially
given as a gift to Harvard in 1922 by Ernest G. Stillman, class
of 1907, the painting will be auctioned at Christies auction
house as part of a sale titled Important American Paintings,
Drawings, and Sculptures. The painting has a projected sale
price of $3 million to $5 million. The
painting in question is the only major Cassatt oil that Harvard
University owns, standing out among a potpourri of other Cassatt
drawings and prints, according to the Harvard University Art Museums
