Introducing Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) was born into a well to-do family and educated within the conventions of a young woman of her class. Excelling at drawing and encouraged by her mother she developed into a professional artist exhibiting at the Paris Salon. A close friendship with Edouard Manet, (she married his brother) saw her style develop to a light impressionist style with subjects focused on the feminine and domestic.
In this talk we will trace Berthe Morisot’s biography, her influences and the development of her style, and discuss how Morisot was able to thrive within the most radical group of artists, The Impressionists, in 19th century Paris.
Delivered by Art Historian Hattie Bennett
