About the work
Berthe Morisot
French, 1841–1895
Follow

Impressionist Berthe Morisot studied with Barbizon School painter Camille Corot who taught her how to paint en plein air. Like Marie Bracquemond and Mary Cassatt, the other well-known female painters of her generation, Morisot avoided the urban street scenes and nude figures that male Impressionists depicted. Instead, she painted her daily experiences and observations, focusing on boating scenes, garden settings, domestic interiors, and portraits of family and friends that convey the comfort and intimacy of family life. She exhibited her work alongside Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley, and married painter Édouard Manet’s brother Eugène.
