Mary Casatt’s Mother About To Wash Her Sleepy Child And Georgia O’ Keeffe’s Horses Skull And Pink Rose.

Memorandum to the Honorable U.S. Ambassador to Iraq.

Your Excellency,

I am honored to be of service, in selecting two appropriate paintings for use In the Embassy at Baghdad. After due thought and consideration, I have selected two paintings for this purpose. The first is titled “Mother about to wash her sleepy child” by the artist Mary Cassett.1 The second is by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe and is titled “Horse’s skull and pink Rose”. I believe these paintings will serve to express American talent and embellish the surroundings in the Iraqi embassy.
Let's make that grade!
