The Berthe Morisot exhibition museum Marmottan in Paris will have 150 of Berthe Morisot’s works on exhibit through July 1st. This is the first Parisian retrospective on the impressionist painter’s work in nearly fifty years.
Berthe Morisot exhibition museum Marmottan : subtle and delicate art
A great-great-niece of Jean Honoré Fragonard, Berthe Morisot began studying painting with Jean-Baptiste Corot at his studio in Ville-d’Avray when she was just 20 years old.
The current Marmottan Museum exhibition is an overview of the career of this talented artist who is still considered to be one of the leading female impressionist painters. Focusing on her influences and her subtle, delicate art, this exhibition highlights the overriding theme of the artist’s work: the celebration of women and children.
Did you know? When she lost her battle against pneumonia in 1895, Berthe Morisot bequeathed her works to her friends Degas, Monet and Renoir.
