Berthe Morisot: Pioneering Impressionism

Image coming soon.

Grégory Picard reviews the Berthe Morisot Retrospective at the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris, on view through July 1, 2012.

Picard writes that this is "the first large-scale Morisot retrospective since 1941… restores Morisot to a central position in art history and in the Impressionist movement, which is all too often limited to Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Manet. In a man's world, Morisot quickly made her mark with an oeuvre that fit into the Impressionist mold but was at the same time eminently free, with her own evanescent style, pastel shades, and languid, even melancholy, compositions, which almost always depicted women."
