Mary Cassat: The letter "Because the sky is blue it makes me cry"

The Letter, Mary Cassatt, 1880-81

I like this painting very much. Mary Cassat is impressionist but this painting has the influence of Japanese prints.
There is something about blue that touch us in a very deep way.
"Because the sky is blue it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue..."
John Lennon
