Why was Mary Cassatt significant? How did her art affect the world and society. Do you know what I found? I think she was significant because her style of art influenced American taste in favour of the I'mpressionists. Her work was very popular in America. She was also significant because comparatively few women have made a name for themselves as artists, and the fact that she was invited to join the I'mpressionists, and became a great friend of Degas, shows that they must have thought highly of her work.
