Happy Father's Day

Portrait if Alexander J. Cassatt and his son, Robert Kelso Cassatt 

Mary Cassatt, the Impressionist artist, is well known for using her family as models in her artwork (men and boys are seen less often) as she spent a lot of her time around the women of the family. In this portrait we see Cassatt's father and her brother sharing an intimate moment. Her father was a railroad man and probably not around the house as often, or willing to sit still for very long (pure conjecture on my part). Happy Father's Day - perhaps you can capture an image of your father today?
