6573 P-L. Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named in memory of Mary Cassatt (1845-1927), American impressionistic painter, who studied in Italy, Spain, Holland and especially France. She and Degas {see planet (6673)} became great friends and influenced each other. The Japanese print makers, whose work became known during her lifetime, also made an impression on her. (M 27463)
