LabelThis painting shows Lydia Cassatt, the artist's sister, on a carriage drive with a young niece of the painter Edgar Degas, accompanied by a groom. Mary Cassatt purchased the horse and carriage in 1879 for her country estate near Paris, and the painting dates from a subsequent visit by her family from Philadelphia.
